    US salvage experts have successfully towed the Shell oil rig which ran aground in stormy weather off Alaska last week.

    The Kulluk is now in safe harbour in Kiliuda Bay where it will be examined to assess its seaworthiness after it was refloated.

    More than 630 people took part in the recovery operation, along with a large fleet of vessels and aircraft.
