Although the Calor Gas office was informed of the accident the fire brigade was not called out. The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency was also informed but stated that, because the spill would not enter the local water supply, and it was rather late in the day, no-one would be despatched to carry out and inspection.
Fortunately, a local business has all the equipment to deal with an oil spill and the job was completed this morning. All that remains is for Calor to make an estimated £300-worth of repairs to the road and to mend Hughie's fence: well, we can't have his pigs running amok around Kilchoan.
Many thanks to Sue and Sharon for pictures.
