In January 1993 the Liberian registered tanker Braer en route from Norway to Canada developed engine failure and drifted ashore at Garths Ness on Shetland whereupon it proceeded to spill its cargo of 85,000 tons of Norwegian crude. The loss of seabird life was enormous and the disruption to the life of many Shetlanders was considerable.
