Have your say

SPILLED diesel caused problems after a bus leaked the fuel on several roads.

Firefighters from Fareham were called to help after a bus was spotted leaking diesel at bus stops and the roads between West Street and Gudge Heath Lane in the 
town yesterday at about 10.30am.

Firefighters called the police who tracked down the bus company.

The firm then came out to tackle the spill by putting sand on it.
