SHINNECOCK BAY -

The Coast Guard is set to inspect a British ship that sunk off Long Island during World War II.

It was sunk by the Germans, about 30 miles off Shinnecock.

The Coast Guard will investigate Sunday to see if it still contains a large amount of oil.

If so, the Coast Guard and Resolve Marine Group will remove the oil to prevent pollution.
