A diesel spill was safely con­tained on Mon­day af­ter a truck over­turned on New North Rd in Mt Al­bert.

The driver was un­hurt when the truck car­ry­ing a dig­ger over­turned near the cor­ner of Asquith Ave at about noon.

The Fire Ser­vice says diesel spilled from the truck’s fuel tank af­ter the crash.

Auck­land Re­gional Coun­cil pol­lu­tion con­trol of­fi­cer Toby Barach says the diesel was pre­vented from en­ter­ing wa­ter­ways by seal­ing off drains.

A sucker ve­hi­cle was on hand when the truck was righted in case of any fur­ther spill, but it was not needed.
