Fire crews from Hereford and Leominster have dealt with a building fire and a chemical leak at a Hereford factory this evening.

Crews were called to Special Metals Wiggin at shortly after 4pm this evening and on arrival, they could see smoke coming through the roof of one of the factory buildings. A small chemical leak was also found and crews quickly got things until control.

Hereford and Worcester Fire & Rescue Service remain on site and workers have been evacuated from surrounding buildings as a precaution.
