Firefighters were tasked to tend to an overturned milk tanker near Narberth containing approximately 20,000 litres of milk.

At 3.49pm on Monday, July 1, Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service (MAWWFRS) crews from Narberth, Pembroke Dock and Whitland Fire Stations were called to an incident along the B4314 in Narberth.

Whilst fire crews responded to an overturned milk tanker containing approximately 20,000 litres of milk, the road between Tavernspite and Princes Gate was closed for several hours.

Firefighters assisted the driver out of the vehicle who was then assessed by on-scene paramedics and conveyed to hospital by road ambulance.

Crews and a local farmer blocked the flow of milk spilling from the vehicle from entering the watercourse.

Natural Resources Wales was informed of the incident and the milk company attended the scene to decant the remaining milk from the overturned tanker to another.

One eye-witness who saw the aftermath of the incident, commented: “Saw the vehicle getting towed down to Pembroke Dock. What a mess, hope the driver is ok.”

Dyfed-Powys Police was also in attendance and the road was closed during the incident and the vehicle’s recovery.

Fire crews left the scene at 7.33pm.
