A Scorpio Tankers ship and a Knutsen OAS Shipping LNG carrier have been damaged in a collision off Spain.

Spain's transport, mobility, and urban planning ministry (MITMA) said the 39,000-dwt product tanker STI Pimlico (built 2013) was in collision with the 138,000-cbm Bilbao Knutsen (built 2004) about 2.5 miles off the port of Huelva at 0403 GMT on Friday.

MITMA tweeted that the harbour master's office had carried out an inspection of the two ships.
