Chemical spill at Trafford Park

Emergency services dealing with a chemical spill cordoned off parts of an industrial estate in Trafford Park earlier this week.

A Heavy Goods Vehicle was cordoned off to a distance of 50 metres near the Manchester International Freight Terminal, Trafford Park after the 24,000 litre tanker leaked a highly flammable petrol based spirit.

The driver of a second lorry reported the incident to police just before 6pm claiming that the fumes had made him feel unwell.

Absorbent powder was used to mop up the spill and a precautionary ambulance was called.

It took two hours for emergency services to clean up the spill and return the industrial estate to normal business.

The effects of chemical spills

Chemical spills can be incredibly dangerous and if not treated properly can be life threatening to anyone involved. Inhaling dangerous chemicals can generate a whole series of long term injuries including respiratory illnesses and heart and lung failure.
Chemicals that come into contact with the skin can result in horrific burns as well as blindness if chemicals reach the eyes.
