Chemical Spill

Two police officers and four workers had to be taken to hospital after a chemical spill in Northamptonshire.

A thousand litres of hydrochloric acid were spilt at a building on Hackwood Road in the High March area of Daventry at 7.30am on Tuesday 3 September 2013.

People in the area were advised to keep windows and doors closed because the fumes from the spill were potentially toxic if breathed in.

The industrial site was cordoned off by police and people were advised not to go to the area.

Northamptonshire Police say the fumes from the spill were potentially toxic if breathed in.

Fire crews and police told Heart the spill was 'contained' by 12pm on Tuesday 3 September.
