Sexton chemical spill fizzles

TWEED firefighters were called to a chemical spill this morning on the Pacific Hwy.

A Tweed firefighter spokesman said the station received reports about 9am that a truck was reported spilling a chemical on Sexton Hill, near the site of the Banora Point Pacific Highway Upgrade.

But when firefighters arrived at the scene the truck was gone and no spill was found.

"It (the truck) must have continued up to Brisbane," the spokesman said.
