Incident involving chemicals

Glory Mill Lane, Wooburn Green

One appliance and crew from Beaconsfield, one from High Wycombe, one from Windsor Tinkers Lane, one from Gerrards Cross, and a support unit from Marlow attended, along with three officers.

Two chemicals had been mixed, causing a chemical reaction.

The site was evacuated. Thames Valley Police helped keep cordons in place.

The firefighters used two sets of breathing apparatus and gauntlets. They removed a 25-litre chemical container, and used positive pressure ventilation to help clear fumes.

Four people were assessed by South Central Ambulance Service.

A plant room has been closed off, and the incident left with the site owners to arrange for the mixed chemicals to be removed.
