Polluting cruise liner in Marseille fined

A cruise liner captain and his bosses have been fined €100,000 for polluting the air in Marseille by using heavy-sulphur oil.

The fine on the skipper of the Azura and US owner Carnival is the first such court case in France. It comes after heavy local criticism of poor air quality with plumes of black smoke seen over the port area.
