Somebody doesn't know sand is not the best to use for an oil spillage.

Bit of petrol applied on top then ignited to burn off the oil would probably work but that would obviously fail H&S. :)

There is a proper expensive powder material used (the name of which escapes me) Cement dust is a good alternative

Sand is exactly what you put on it to absorb the spill and prevent other vehicles from sliding on the oil.

ps your own "advice" re burning the oil off, no good. Thumbs down for you.

Nothing about me and my partner being members if the public making the area safe and treating the injured man from the punto before the services arrived.
