The 105 meter long self-propelled barge Libelle ran aground on the Easter Scheldt near Sint-Philipsland, Netherlands. The vessel, loaded with 2200 metric tons of steel slag, was in danger of breaking up at low tide. Tugs and a crane ship were requested to the scene.

No reports of injuires or pollution being released.
