Surveying the scene, Thai soldiers in white biochemical suits begin the clear up as an oil slick washes ashore. The idyllic beaches of Samet Island, a few miles from Bangkok, have been hit by the fourth biggest oil spill in Thai history. Around 50,000 litres of crude oil poured into the Gulf of Thailand on Saturday when a pipeline leaked around 20 km south-east of Bangkok.
