A number of workers were brought to hospital after a chemical leak on in west Dublin this morning.

 

Firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene of a "hazmat" incident in Blanchardstown this morning.

It happened at an industrial estate in Ballycoolin, where a chemical was found to have leaked from containers at about 11am.

Dublin Fire Brigade says the scene has now been contained, and there's no danger to the public.

Local Fianna Fáil TD Jack Chambers hailed emergency services for their quick response.
