FIREFIGHTERS were called to a Colchester skate park after a chemical spillage.

Four crews from Colchester and Dovercourt went to the site next to Leisure World at 8am today.

Centre managers had found a small spillage from a leaking four-litre drum and cordoned off the area.

Firefighters did not need to take any action and left the incident to be dealt with by Leisure World staff.
