The Canadian Coast Guard and Port Metro Vancouver are working to clean up a bunker fuel spill in English Bay that occurred Wednesday afternoon.
The City of Vancouver issued a warning Thursday morning that the fuel is toxic and should not be touched. Several people have reported seeing an oily sheen on the water at the beach near the foot of Denman and Davie Streets.
UBC experts are available for media comment on the story.
