'Incident' at Weyhill Industrial Estate

Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service First Responders 4 (HFRS)

Published by Faye Tryhorn at 12:18pm 10th January 2019.

Three people reported symptoms from an unknown substance - but tests suggest it's nothing to worry about.

Hampshire Fire and Rescue led the response to the incident at around 9.20am this morning (Thursday January 10th).

One person initially reported potential symptoms after exposure to a substance.

They, and a further two people, were checked over by medical teams at the scene, but didn't need any further treatment.

All of the patients have now been discharged from care.

The incident did prompt Hampshire Hospitals NHS Trust to close the Minor Injury Unit at Andover's War Memorial Hospital for a short time:

The unit re-opened around an hour later.

Tests on the substance have shown the substance involved is 'not suspicious'.

Crews left the scene at around 11.30am.
