Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service have released a statement about their operation on the M6.
“At this stage, our priority is to contain the chemicals and remove them and ensure that there are no hazards to public health at the scene.
We will then seek to remove vehicles from the scene and re-open the motorway later today.
Ten people, including 8 firefighters, were taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.
One remains in hospital and is being monitored carefully but we anticipate he will be released very soon.
Our information indicates that the chemicals will pose no danger to the public and we would like to reassure everybody who has been in the vicinity.
However, we advise residents living within the vicinity to stay inside and close the windows, again, as a precaution only.”
