Bad weather is hampering efforts to clean-up a 1.5 kilometre long diesel spill caused by a sunken Canadian cruise ship.

The Explorer left the oil slick in the Antarctic last week after it struck an iceberg and sank east of King George Island.

The long, narrow spill is currently penned in by large chunks of floating ice in the Bransfield Strait.
