IBIZA - All the main beaches which had been closed over an oil spill have been reopened on the Spanish holiday island of Ibiza, officials said Friday. 

Talamanca and Ses Figueres beaches were now deemed safe for swimming. En Bossa beach had already been reopened on Tuesday.

A few smaller beaches remained closed, but were also expected to lift the red flag soon.

The freighter MS Don Pedro leaked about 50 tons of fuel into the sea after sinking last week, damaging the tourism industry on the Mediterranean island.

Officials said no more oil was leaking out of the wreck located at a depth of more than 40 metres. A Dutch company was to remove the remaining 100 tons of oil from the wreck, reports said. dpa st ds
