Publish Date:

Operations Control Edinburgh received a call at 10.40pm last night (29th August) to a chemical incident at The Mercat Gait Centre, Preston Road, Prestonpans.

Crews from Musselburgh and Tranent were mobilised to the incident, which was a small spillage of calcium hypochlorite caused by a faulty pump in the plant room of a leisure centre.

Once cordons were set up and the centre staff evacuated, firefighters donned breathing apparatus and fully ventilated the room.

The incident was then handed over to centre management.
