A combination of pictures shows a local resident looking at a beach covered with oil in Muxia, northwestern Spain, following the sinking of the Prestige oil tanker off Spain, on November 22, 2002 (top) and a local resident standing in the same area on November 8, 2012. Ten year ago the Prestige leaked 50,000 tonnes of fuel into the Atlantic after it sank off northern Spain. It took on water in a storm on November 13, 2002, and drifted for six days before breaking up and sinking.
