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.

Specialist firefighters trained in the disposal of hazardous materials contained the leakage.

A number of workers were decontaminated at site -- and several were taken to hospital as a precaution.

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.
