AN unidentified substance forced the closure of a road in Worksop this morning (Thursday).

Police and the Notts Fire and Rescue Service were called to Manton Wood Enterprise Park at 9.45am after the substance was seen on the road between the estate and the A57.

The road was cordoned off briefly and diversions put in place so the substance could be examined.

The substance has been identified as a chemical used in food processing.

“Although the substance did have a strong odour, there was no danger to members of the public or employees at the enterprise park.”

“The spillage has now been cleared and the road has reopened,” said a Notts Police spokesman.
