US environmental activists are preparing to march against offshore drilling as the clean-up of another Gulf of Mexico oil spill gets under way.

Five vessels are working on the spill off the coast of Louisiana after about 334-thousand litres of oil poured out of a Shell flow line.

Green groups say the disaster is another example of why offshore drilling should be banned, and will demand an end to the practice at a protest in Washington, DC, tomorrow.
