Burnham-On-Sea fire crews called to oil tanker after ditch plunge

Police and fire crews from Burnham-On-Sea were called to an oil tanker which slid into a roadside ditch on Monday (January 19th).

A soft verge in West Road, Lympsham gave way, sending the tanker - full of heating oil - partially into the ditch.

Crews were called amid concern that the vehicle could have toppled over and it was checked over for safety.

Police spokesman Craig Evry told "We were called at just after 2pm to a tanker carrying heating oil that was partially in a ditch."

"It was confirmed that there had been no leakage and no injuries. The road was closed to allow for recovery of the vehicle."
