Belper fuel leak

A petrol station in Belper was closed for an hour on Sunday after 70 litres of fuel leaked from a ruptured petrol tank.

The incident happened on the forecourt at Morrisons, on Chapel Street, at around 1.25pm.

One appliance from Belper was called and an environmental grab pack was used to contain the spill.

A plugging paste was used to stem the flow of petrol and the forecourt was reopened at 2.20pm
