Chemicals discovered by roadside

A BUSY road was closed after chemicals were found.

Four fire crews were called out to the incident on the A57 near Todwick last Friday, just after 8am.

Some chemicals had been discovered at the roadside and firefighters closed the road as a precaution.

Officers worked to identify the chemicals before declaring the scene safe.

They spent just over two hours at the scene.
