Aftermath of an accident.

On the 2nd of February 1990 this was the scene at the crossroads in the centre of the village of Denshaw.
The tanker on the left had come off the M62 motorway at Junction 22 and was heading downhill towards Oldham through Denshaw village along the A672.
The van pulled out into the path of the tanker and on impact completely spun round while the tanker crashed through the stone wall and down the embankment.
The tanker contained a full load of styrene LinkExternal link which started to leak into the atmosphere this resulted in the area being sealed
off all day and late into night while the styrene was pumped out and transferred to another tanker.
