Stowmarket:2nd Chemical Spill at Factory

There has been a second chemical leak at a factory in Stowmarket in Suffolk in less than a week.

It happened on Sunday afternoon at PPG at Needham Road and meant the road had to be closed and people in nearby homes were advised to close their windows and doors.

There had previously been a similar spill in another part of the factory on Thursday, and again the fire service had to put down a layer of special foam on top of the chemicals to stop and potentially flammable chemicals getting out.

The fire service estimate between 500 and 1000 liters of chemicals had got out.

The area's now been made safe and all roads are now re-opened.
