A 4x4 Vauxhall had a fuel leak on a petrol station's forecourt, resulting in a small fire starting.

It happened between 7pm and 7.15pm yesterday at the Gulf garage in Ramsgate Road, Sandwich.

Ramsgate firefighters were called, but by the time they got there the fire had already been put out.

"We carried out an inspection on it."

The crew remained there for half an hour.
