A picture has emerged today of more than 5000 litres of ink which poured out across a site in Dartford.
Three fire engines rushed to Howard Hunt Group in Masthead Close to stop the vibrant liquid entering any water systems.
Officers used clay mats to cover nearby drains.
The spillage is believed to have happened as a result of containers being tampered with.
Kent Fire and Rescue tweeted: "This isn’t Art Attack... this is what crews were presented with when attending a spillage of ink in #Dartford.
"Firefighters worked to ensure ink didn’t go into drains and enter the watercourse.
"Protecting the environment is a key priority."
Duty of care was left with the site owner after firefighters left on April 20, who are still not finished the enduring task of clearing up this colourful mess.
