Fire crews at Canon Lane Tonbridge near the Subway store

By KentOnline reporter

The area around a Tonbridge sandwich shop was cordoned off as fire crews dealt with a chemical spill this afternoon.

Emergency crews descended on Canon Lane after the leaking 10-litre container was discovered near Subway.

A portion of the liquid had spilt out and crystallised on the road surface.

A spokesman for Kent Fire and Rescue Service said the solution was found to be non-toxic urea, a liquid used in fertilisers and the chemical industry.

The area was cordoned off as a precaution and the waste was cleaned up and disposed of by council waste contractors.

Fire crews left the scene by 1.34pm.
