An oil spill in Louth town centre has meant paths and roads within the town have had to be gritted today (Wednesday), for public safety.

Lincolnshire County Council’s area highways manager, Dean Myhil, confirmed to the Leader that the spill had come from a HGV.

The paths and roads around the Market Place have been gritted to stop people slipping until it can be cleared away later today.

“There has been an oil spill on and around the Market Place in Louth from a HGV, which has also got onto the footpaths from people walking over it,” said Mr Myhill.

“To keep people safe, and in conjunction with East Lindsey District Council, we have gritted the road and the footpaths around the area and will be clearing up the grit later today.”
