Oil rig workers search continues

US Coastguard is continuing to search for 11 oil rig workers missing after an explosion on a drilling platform in the Gulf of Mexico.

Most of the workers from the Deepwater Horizon were rescued by air and sea on Wednesday.

The rig is still burning, and is reportedly in danger of toppling over after beginning to tilt.

Russell Trott reports.
