Wisbech: Chemical Spill
Six people have been treated for breathing difficulties following a chemical spill at a factory in Wisbech.
Several fire crews and a hazardous materials unit were called to Paragon Labels on Cromwell Lane in Wisbech at lunchtime today (Wednesday).
The building was evacuated and a 100 metre cordon was put in place around the factory.
A leaking drum, containing 20 litres of solvent and some water-based inks was taken away from the building.
Employees have now been allowed back into the factory.
Cambridgeshire Fire Service say there is 'no threat to public safety'.
A Fire Service spokesperson said: "Fire officers at the scene are working with experts and management at the site to decide the best way to neutralise and dispose of the chemicals."
A spokesperson for the East of England Ambulance Service said: "All six casualties are being treated for breathing problems after it is believed they inhaled vapours escaping from a drum and following further assessments, all six will not be requiring further treatment at hospital."
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Fire Authority are asking residents if they'd support a rise of 1.9% to its proportion of council tax for 2017/18.
