Operators Taqa Bratani said the platform was shut down as a precaution.

No-one was injured. The company said the exact cause of the incident was not yet known.

Taqa said 92 non-essential crew were transferred, from a total of 202 personnel.

The neighbouring feeder Tern and Eider installations were also shut down.
