FIREFIGHTERS cleared up a chemical spillage in a Hampshire supermarket car park in the early hours of today.
A crew from Romsey fire station dressed in protective gear spread granules to absorb dangerous industrial fluids after
cordoning off the car park area in Waitrose car park in Alma Road, Romsey, just after midnight.
The fluid was leaking from drums in a parked lorry.
A nail had pierced a 200 litre container causing highly flammable and toxic fluid used in the rubber industry to leak out. The driver raised the alarm.
No one was injured and the spill was mopped up by 2am.
