The incident took place at Broadland Sands, in Corton, near Lowestoft, on Saturday, August 11.

The spillage, occurred in the plant room of the park’s swimming pool.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue service where called to the park at 10.50am.

In total, six crews arrived at the holiday park but were stood down by 11.46am.

A spokesperson for Park Holidays, which runs the Lowestoft park said: “Three members of staff were taken to hospital as a precaution but after examination where discharged. No guests where involved, the spillage was cleared up very quickly and the swimming pool remained open.”

Forecasters are warning Suffolk and north Essex could see a sprinkling of sleet over the next few days – as overnight temperatures look set to plummet.

Detectives investigating reports of an attack outside an Ipswich restaurant have arrested two people.

Suffolk’s Tory MPs look set to vote together to support Theresa May in Wednesday night’s confidence vote on her leadership – but in Essex the picture is somewhat different.
