ABP statement on Port of Hull incident

An ABP spokesperson said: “Earlier this morning the fire service left site following a hydrochloric acid leak last night on one of our customers sections of the Port of Hull, believing the incident was under the control of UM Storage.
“However, it has now become apparent following a change in wind direction that there is an ongoing incident involving a vapour cloud at the site. An exclusion zone within a section of the Port of Hull has been established. Please be assured nobody outside the exclusion zone should be concerned.
“ABP are assisting the fire service and other authorities to resolve this situation as quickly as possible. The eastern access road entrance to the port is currently closed until further notice.”
