A heavy truck carrying sulphur acid capsized near the town of Pori in western Finland on Friday, local media reported.

Several hundred liters of the acid leaked out, fire inspector Tero Jarvela told media. The driver was only lightly injured.

The rescue operations were expected to take several hours as the first equipment was to arrive to salvage the remaining cargo.

As the acid is dangerous to people, national Highway Two was closed in both directions. No evacuation of people was reported.
