Improvement deadline for North Sea gas leak platform

An oil firm has been given until February to make improvements to a North Sea oil platform after a gas leak.

The incident happened on the Ninian Central rig in August, when there was a significant leak.

Operating firm CNR International was told the incident put people in danger and that it could face prosecution if improvements were not carried out.

The HSE, which issued the prohibition notice, said an inquiry was ongoing.
