A tanker carrying 9m litres (2.4m gallons) of diesel fuel has run aground off the coast of northern Canada, the Canadian Coast Guard has said.

The vessel, owned by Woodward’s Oil, hit a sandbar in the Northwest Passage, south-west of the community of Gjoa Haven in the Nunavut federal territory.

No diesel is believed to have been spilt, Coast Guard officials told CBC.

The Canadian authorities are reportedly working with Woodward’s Oil to get the tanker floating again, they added.

The Coast Guard told CBC that it was too early to tell when the ship, which was supplying remote communities in the region, would be able to move.
