Crews mobilised to chemical spillage

Longmead Road, Emersons Green

We were called at 12:22 to reports of a chemical spillage at a warehouse on Longmead Road, Emersons Green.

Crews from Yate, Patchway and Kingswood attend and on arrival found a container of hydrogen peroxide has split and was leaking onto the floor area of the warehouse.

Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used one 45mm covering jet and a high pressure hose reel to dilute the chemical to a safe solution.

The cause of the incident is thought to be accidental spillage.
