Chelmsford: Man Arrested Over Chemical Leak
Police investigating a chemical leak in Chelmsford have arrested a man.
He is being questioned on suspicion of being concerned in manufacturing drugs.
Firefighters, the hazardous area response team, paramedics and police were called to New London Road just before 5:30pm yesterday (Wednesday 2 October) to find a number of open containers had leaked chemicals and workers in the area reported feeling unwell.
The chemicals were removed and the building was evacuated.
Five people who became unwell were then taken to Broomfield Hospital.
Officers discovered further chemicals believed to be connected to drugs production at an address on North Avenue.
Part of the road has been closed as the chemicals are removed.
Two men have been jailed for a total of 40 years after an aggravated burglary in Essex, where a man was shot.
Anyone with information about an assault on a man in Chelmsford a month ago, which left him with serious head injuries, is being asked to come forward.
Essex's PCC is proposing a 3.25% increase in the Essex Police part of Council Tax.
