Warship in danger of SINKING after colliding with oil tanker in Norwegian fjord

A WARSHIP is in danger of sinking after smashing into an oil tanker, prompting the evacuation of 137 sailors.

Up to eight people were injured in the collision in the Hjeltefjord near Bergen, Norway, when the KNM Helge Ingstad crashed into a vessel from Malta.

The warship is currently in danger of sinking, while the tanker, named the Sola TS, is slightly damaged and did not spill oil.

The collision happened yesterday morning at 3am (4am local time) during a training session, officials have confirmed.

The tanker had set sail from Equinor's Sture oil terminal with a cargo of North Sea crude.
