Fuel had to be washed from the road following a smash in Gloucester this afternoon.

Firefighters were called to Secunda Way in the city just after 1pm today (Boxing Day).

A spokesman for Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service said: “The incident commander confirmed there was a spillage of fuel in the area and the crew washed down the highway and disconnected a battery to make safe.

“The crew stayed at the scene for thirty minutes.”

    They had a photographer out anyway, RoadWombat. Unless it was a member of the public who took the photos of he St. Ann Way crash. The article says that the fuel spillage in Secunda Way was caused by a 'smash', although admittedly it doesn't say how bad that crash was, or how many vehicles were involved.

    You really think they're going to pay a photographer bank holiday rates for a picture of a fuel spillage?

    Most of us know what a fire engine looks like; it would have been rather more informative to have a photo of the actual collision scene.
