FIRE crews were called to tackle a fire in a chemical factory last night.
A chemical incident unit and four appliances were called to FMC Chemicals, on Commercial Road, Bromborough on Wirral.
The blaze was thought to have started after a leak of the flammable chemical butyl lythium in the pipe work at 4.50pm.
It took firefighters more than an hour to bring the blaze under control. The building was not severely damaged.
