Peru clean-up brigades work after second oil spill

Description

As clean-up work on the Peruvian coast continues after the oil spill caused by freak waves from the eruption of Tonga volcano, a new leak occurred at the same refinery, La Pampilla. Oscar Garcia, head of the National Service of Protected Natural Areas, says the extent of the disaster cannot yet be calculated but says it's "an irreparable ecological catastrophe."
