FIREFIGHTERS were called to a farm near Comberbach in the early hours of this morning, Tuesday, to deal with an oil leak.

Two fire engines from Northwich Fire Station were dispatched to Cogshall Lane shortly after 2.30am after receiving reports of a leak of between 30 and 40 litres of oil.

Fire crews isolated the leak using specialist equipment and a vessel was put in place to prevent a further leak.

They then gave safety advice to the farm owner.
