Fire crews tackle chemical spillage


TWO fire crews were called out earlier today (Wednesday) following a chemical spillage involving a forklift truck in Warrington.

The incident was reported at 15:18 and two fire engines attended – one from Warrington and one from Penketh, following reports of a forklift truck leaking a chemical at the back of a unit on Sankey Street in Warrington.
The leak had come from the truck tipping over.
A cordon was placed around the leak which involved battery acid.
Crews wore a breathing apparatus and used a hose reel jet to apply small quantities of water to the battery acid.
There were no injuries to the driver of the truck.
The scene has been made safe.
