Fire crews attend Inverness filling station fuel leak

Firefighters have dealt with fuel leaking from a supermarket's filling station in Inverness.

The incident was reported at about 12:15 and led to the closure of the road to the Tesco on the city's Dores Road.

Highlands and Islands Fire and Rescue Service (HIFRS) said two fire appliances and a unit that sprays foam were at the scene.

Police were also called to the incident.

The access road to Tesco store has since reopened. The filling station remains closed and Northern Constabulary said it was not expected to open until at least lunchtime on Wednesday.
