FIRE fighters had to mop petrol from the road after a car was reported to be leaking fuel in Wilder Road, Ilfracombe, on Sunday evening.

Crews found the vehicle at 7.30pm and stemmed the leak, soaking up around three litres of excess fuel using environmental packs.

Devon County Council Highways attended to soak up the remainder with sand.
