Hazardous chemical removed from Blackburn
1:35pm Tuesday 9th October 2012 in News
FIREFIGHTERS were called after a man saw a 25-litre drum of hazardous material, in Whalley Old Road, Blackburn.
They attended at 3.45pm yesterday to find the sealed drum was marked with ‘chemical release agent’ on the label.
Crew manager Mick Birks said: “After investigating, we found the drum wasn’t leaking, so we called the local authority who came to take it away.”
