Officers from the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) this evening responded to an incident at Goathill Quarry, Easter Bucklyvie, Cowdenbeath.

Officers joined colleagues from Police Scotland, the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service and Fife Council following reports of a thick black substance affecting the road junction at the A909 and B925, near the Mossmorran facility. 

With the organic material, thought to be a by-product of whisky production, having been contained and removed from road surfaces, SEPA officers have stood down for the evening and will continue a regulatory investigation with the quarry operator, Collier Haulage, over the coming days.

SEPA operates a 24-hour Pollution Hotline on 0800 80 70 60.
