Public praised for raising alarm in Bexhill

Bexhill firefighters have praised a member of the public for contacting East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service after spotting a damaged vehicle which they thought was leaking petrol.

Upon investigation crews discovered it only to be leaking anti-freeze and although not dangerous, on this occasion, could have been if it had been petrol.

Watch Commander Andy Upton said:

“Please don’t hesitate to contact the emergency service if you have any concerns about the safety of the public, we would rather be safe than sorry.”

Firefighters took the battery apart as a precautionary measure, as well as contacting the relevant authorities to deal with the purple Nissan Micra, which had been damaged on its nearside wing in Bridge Road, Bexhill, on Sunday (16th September) at 5.22pm.
