Swimmers evacuated from pool as chemical leak reported at top Norfolk holiday park

Dozens of swimmers were evacuated from a pool at one of Norfolk's premier holiday parts after reports of a chlorine leak.

A chemical incident unit from Sprowston was joined by fire crews from Sheringham and Holt at Kelling Heath Holiday Park, near Sheringham, at 6.45pm yesterday.

The response came after staff reported a possible leak.

The crews cleared people from the area and switched off all of the equipment to isolate any possible problems. The incident was over by 8pm, and nobody was hurt.

A spokesman for Norfolk Fire Service said: 'It's not possible to be certain that there was a leak, but the people at Kelling Heath did all the right things.'
