No clue yet as to fuel leak

LARNACA municipality was yesterday still at a loss concerning the origin of a fuel leak detected during construction work in the Drosia area.

The authorities suspect the leak, which was spotted during work on Larnaca’s sewerage system last Thursday, came from a neighbouring petrol station.

“We started our own investigation in co-operation with inspectors from the labour office,” Larnaca Mayor Andreas Louroudjiadis told the Cyprus Mail yesterday. “The petrol station’s owner is also expected to conduct his own investigation.”

There are two petrol stations close to where the leak was found.

The other station’s owner acted immediately after being notified about the leak, Louroudjiadis said on Tuesday, and the results showing no faults were out within 48 hours.

Under-aged driver

A 15-YEAR-OLD Limassol girl, driving her 25-year-old sister’s car, crashed into a parked car when she lost control of the vehicle, police said yesterday.

The accident occurred on Patroklos Street in Limassol at around 5.45pm on Saturday. The teenager was driving while her older sister sat in the passenger seat when, due to the 15-year-old’s inexperience, she lost control of the vehicle and ended up swerving on to a pavement, driving across a field and ended up in a garage, where she collided with 41-year-old man’s parked car.

No one was injured in the accident although both cars were damaged. The 15-year-old was submitted to an alcohol test which recorded a reading of zero.

The two sisters were charged in writing and released to be called at a later day.
