A 19,000 ton Norwegian oil rig has blown ashore in Scotland.

The rig was being towed from Norway to Malta when it broke lose and came ashore. The towing vessel Alp Forward reported early Sunday that they had difficulties west of Isle of Lewis because of rough weather.

According to the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) the rig separated from Alp Forward then the tug line broke on Monday night. On Tuesday the rig had blown ashore.

Because of very bad weather, tugboats were unable to hook the line back on, thus the rig went aground near Carloway.

According to MCA, there are no people on board. There is therefore no danger of lives being lost, but MCA's anti-pollution branch were monitoring the situation as the rig had 280 metric tonnes of diesel on board.

- Transocean Winner lost the tug line in a severe storm, and as a result it went aground off Scotland. No rig personnel are in danger. Transocean is now working closely with the authorities to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. Further information will be released as it becomes available, says a statement from the rig company.
