Chemical spill at warehouse in Colnbrook cleared up by fire crews

A chemical spill at a warehouse in Old Bath Road was attended by firefighters and other emergency services in the early hours of the morning.

A fire crew from Langley and two from Slough, along with a pump from Whitley Wood Fire Station in Reading, were called to the scene of the incident at Uch Handling Limited at 12.23am and were there for about two hours.

Also in attendance was a hazardous response unit, the police, and numerous ambulance vehicles including a heart team from the London Ambulance Service.

Ambulance crews treated two warehouse employees at the scene and three were taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.

Firefighters contained the spill and to clear it up used a chemical-resistant over drum which contains absorbent pads.
