The spill happened at Allen Meale Way, a cul-de-sac in Stalham, on Thursday, May 27.

A Norfolk Fire and Rescue spokesman said fire engines from Stalham, Wroxham and Sprowston stations were called into deal with the lead, which came from a stationary oil tank with a capacity of 1,000 litres.

The crews used dammit mats - clay drain mats used to soak up spills - and granules to absorb the oil.

Firefighters were called in at 5.47pm, and the leak had been dealt with just before 7pm.
