Fuel terminal operator fined £50,000 after petrol spill in Essex

The operator of an Essex-based fuel storage terminal has been fined £50,000 after a large and dangerous pool of petrol leaked from a road tanker while it was loading.

An investigation by HSE found that the road tanker overflowed in July 2007 when a shut-off valve failed.
