Total UK's managing director Phillipe Guys has said he wanted to "commend everyone" for ensuring the safety of personnel in the wake of the North Sea gas leak.

The leak at the Elgin platform, 150 miles off Aberdeen, has been ongoing since Sunday when workers were evacuated.

Total has said the gas is coming from a rock formation above the main reservoir at a depth of 4,000m.
