A strong stench of acid was reported in Wherstead today, leading to concerns over a potential spillage.
A spokesman for Suffolk Fire and Rescue said that concerns had been raised about a minor spill of hazardous material after a delivery at a site The Street, Wherstead this morning.
Fire crews were called at around 11.15am and found there were concerns over a delivery of 10 litres of a substance known as brick acid.
The boxes the acid containers were transported in were reported as being damp on arrival and were said to be giving off a strong smell.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue remain at the scene. There are no reported injuries or health concerns reported from the incident at this stage.
Brick acid is a powerful cleaning agent used in the building industry to remove debris and stains from bricks.
Crews were able to contain the acid safely and handed over the job to specialists.
