Wooburn Green gym evacuated after chemical reaction

Firefighters called to 30ft blaze in Langley

A private gym in Wooburn Green had to be evacuated today due to a chemical incident.

Firefighters were called to David Lloyd Beaconsfield, in Glory Mill Lane, shortly after midday following reports that two chemicals had been mixed together, causing a reaction.

The site was evacuated and Thames Valley Police put a cordon in place while crews made the scene safe.

Firefighters from Beaconsfield, High Wycombe, Windsor, Gerrards Cross and a support unit from Marlow donned breathing apparatus and removed a 25-litre chemical container from the site.

Crews also ventilated the building to help clear fumes.

A total of four people were assessed at the scene by crews from the South Central Ambulance Service.

A plant room at the gym has also been closed off.
