LONDON (Reuters) - Environmental campaigners have boarded an oil drilling ship operating off the Shetland Islands under contract to U.S. oil giant Chevron, the second such boarding in European waters in recent weeks.

Greenpeace said in a statement that its activists had climbed up the anchor chains of the Stena Carron drill ship and were now hanging suspended from the chains in a tent.

The green group said the UK should follow the U.S. example and in the wake of BP's Gulf of Mexico oil spill impose a moratorium on deepwater drilling in European waters.
