Emergency services say a diesel spill in Napier Harbour, believed to have come from a ship, is under control.
As much as 3000 litres of diesel leaked from a vessel late yesterday.
Police, council workers and the Fire Service were all trying to contain the spill which police said was believed to have originated from a ship in West Quay.
They reported this morning the wind had pushed the diesel into the marina but the situation is under control.
The booms have been taken away and a device is being used to suck the diesel out.
There have been reports of wildlife being affected by the spill.
Police say they have spoken to the vessel's owners, but the ship has now left the marina on a scheduled departure.
Another diesel spill was reported in Fiordland yesterday.
Environment Southland hoped the spill - believed to have originated from two sunken vessels - would be dispersed naturally in yesterday's windy conditions.
