The spill was a petrol-based substance, polygasoline, according to a Fire and Rescue spokesman, who added that most of the liquid had been contained but that some had got into a nearby creek.
A spokesman for Shell said heavy rainfall resulted in the stormwater overflow system being unable to contain all of the rainwater, causing an overflow that contained oil.
