3 Bespak workers were hurt last night after a cloud of Formaldehyde gas was released at the plant.

A spokeswoman for the East of England Ambulance Service said they were called at just after 7 o'clock by the Fire Service.

They sent out 4 crews from their Hazardous Area Response Team.

The 3 men who were hurt were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital but they are not thought to have been seriously hurt.

KLFM's Jamie was at the scene and said: "I could see an office building full of a yellow-ish smoke, 9 fire engines."

Bespak makes medical products, we've been unable to reach the company for comment.
