54 Shell workers were evacuated on Monday 29th October after an incident at their UK North Sea Brent Alpha platform. The non-essential employees were transported off the rig after a large container fell off a crane into the sea. The cause of the industrial incident has been described as mechanical failure, and both Brent Alpha and Bravo were subsequently shut down and de-pressurised as a precautionary measure. Around thirty staff remained on the platform to help with the container's recovery.
