A major road in Manchester city centre remains today closed following a HGV diesel spill which occurred this morning.

Quay Street, at the junction with Deansgate and Lower Byrom Street, was closed off by Greater Manchester Police shortly after the incident was reported around 8am.

The incident happened across from the Manchester Opera House theatre.

Fire crews from Bury and Salford, as well as Greater Manchester Police, attended the scene where the vehicles’ tank appeared to be damaged and leaked around 150 litres of fuel onto the road.

Firefighters used absorbent mats and sand to clean up the spill.
