Oil tanker hit by car crashing through Malvern garden

A car has crashed into a tanker in Worcestershire spilling about 1,000 litres (219 gallons) of heating oil.

The people carrier crashed through a garden and hit an oil tanker driving along Rhydd Road, Malvern, at about 1735 GMT on Monday, fire crews said.

Some of the oil leaked into a culvert which firefighters blocked with mud to stop it flowing to neighbours' gardens.

It was cleared up, but the Environment Agency said it would monitor the area for damage to wildlife and hedgerows.
