Ammonia leak in Terminus Road

Update 10pm

We are continuing to work closely with partner agencies as tests are carried out at the scene in Terminus Road, Brighton.

The building has been sealed off and the cylinder has been removed by a specialist contractor.

However, as there are concerns about residual chemical vapours within the building it remains closed.

At this time residents in the terrace are unable to return to their homes and are being accommodated elsewhere.

The area is contained so there is no current threat to the wider community or residents.
