LANGDALE, B.C. - BC Ferries cancelled two sailings on one of its routes between Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland following a small fuel spill Sunday morning.

The publicly owned company says in a statement that a commercial vehicle spilled fuel into the water while discharging from a vessel at Langdale on the Sunshine Coast.

Spokeswoman Deborah Marshall says in an email that about 50 litres of diesel fuel was spilled.

BC Ferries cancelled the sailings Sunday morning between Horseshoe Bay and Langdale to allow time for clean-up crews to recover as much spilled fuel as possible.

It apologized for the inconvenience.
