Oil spill cleared

FIREFIGHTERS spent half an hour clearing up an oil spill on a main road.

A crew from Stranton Fire Station was called to clear up the spillage on Westwood Way, in the Clavering area of Hartlepool.

A passer-by had reported a line of oil that had leaked onto the road, around 7.15pm.

The road remained open while firefighters used an oil dispersant on the spillage.
