Four people are in hospital as a precaution following a chemical spill at a south London industrial park.

Fire officials say two chemicals mixed when a worker punctured drums in the back of a trailer. A total of four employees were exposed to the chemicals, decontaminated at the scene, and then transported to hospital just after 9am this morning.

The Ministry of the Environment and the Ministry of Labour are both on site on Max Brose Dr. An outside clean-up crew has been called in by the company.

No one exposed to the chemicals suffered serious injuries.
