Appliances from Woodbridge, Holbrook, Stowmarket, Hadleigh, Long Melford, Haverhill, Bury St Edmunds, Ixworth and Newmarket are on standby at the scene while the incident is dealt with.

A cordon was put in place surrounding the site and a decontamination area set up.

Fire crews used breathing apparatus to deal with the spillage inside the leisure centre plant room.

The incident was successfully contained with no wider threat to the public. The building was handed back to staff by 2pm.

Mildenhall Hub will remain closed for the rest of Sunday and will reopen as normal on Monday.
