Improvement call for CNR North Sea oil platform Tiffany

Tiffany Tiffany is north east of Aberdeen

Improvements have been demanded on a North Sea oil platform after automatic sprinklers failed to activate when a fire broke out.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has issued two improvement notices to CNR International after the incident aboard the Tiffany platform, 155 miles (249km) north east of Aberdeen.

Sprinklers had to be set off manually when a blaze broke out following an oil leak on 17 January.

CNR has not commented to BBC Scotland.
