CAPE TOWN - Residents and beachgoers in Table View, Cape Town, say a solution must be found soon to remove a shipwreck which continues to pose threat to the environment.

There has been another oil spillage from the troubled Seli 1 vessel, which ran aground in 2009.

Officials say rough seas and swells caused one of the cranes from the Turkish bulk carrier to disintegrate, resulting in the spillage.

The Bloubergstrand and Dolphin beaches have been affected.

Beachgoer Ebie Jacobs said Government should ensure those responsible for the abandoned vessel are held accountable.

Another beachgoer said it was sad that human beings did not care much for the environment.

While another woman, who visits the affected beaches with her nephew often, described the spillage as tragic.

She said it should be removed before it threatens the environment and residents any further.
