UK chemical plant experiences explosions

4 posts in this topic

A UK chemical plant formerly owned chemicals giant ICI has experienced two explosions, and is thought to have released a chemical cloud.

 

The particular plant on the site is said to have dealt in synthetic Ammonia and is said to have begun experiencing its explosions at 12.30am BST (GMT+1) with a low rumbling. One eye witness described the explosions as loud rumblings that lasted mins.

 

Local fire chief has reported the explosion as an expolsive release of ammonia, the crews are on site in a protective measure and the inccident has been scaled down from a major inccident to a lesser occurance and are awaiting the arrival of the sites engineers to make the site safe.
