Crews called to fuel spill at Hankridge Way

Two fire appliances and an environmental protection unit from Taunton were immediately mobilised following a call from a member of the public reporting a fuel spill at Hankridge Way, Taunton at 08:52 this morning (Sunday).

On arrival, the officer in charge confirmed that approximately 50 litres of fuel had spilled onto a forecourt.

Crews got to work to contain the spill using absorbent pads, sand, compressed air foam and a hose reel jet on stand by.

The incident was made safe and duty of care left with the site manager.
