The Environment Agency has recently published repeated advice that domestic heating oil tanks, and their pipework, should be checked regularly, particularly as we move into the colder months of the year and fuel deliveries are underway.
The most recent advice, published at Check your oil tanks for winter, included the recommendation the householders check that their insurance cover is appropriate and that they contact their insurers immediately in the event of a leak.
