Fire fighters called out to help mop up the fuel outside Xanadu fruit shop in Torrington.

FIRE fighters in Torrington were called out yesterday (Wednesday) lunchtime to deal with reports of a car spilling petrol onto the road.

A crew were scrambled to South Street where the silver Vauxhall Astra was parked outside of Xanadu fruit shop.

Crews used a hose reel jet to wash away the fuel and an environment agency kit to mop up the remainder while police diverted traffic around the vehicle.
