Clean-up crews spent hours tending to a major tar spill in Scarborough.

An estimated 200 litres of what authorities call 'roofing material' spilled on the road at the intersection of Morningside Avenue and Military Trail.

Reports say it spilled from the back of a truck when it pulled away from a stop light.

Sand was spread across the street to help workers with shovels clean up the mess.

    Hello Katie,

    Thanks for the interesting video. That is what I wanted to see.

    A short video like that adds a lot to the story.

    I would try panning a little slower. When I shoot, I have to force myself
    all the time to pan slower otherwise the video isn't smooth.

    "On the site" coverage like that is great. It's nice that you were able to do that.

    Thank you NewsTalk 1010
