Was on a weighbridge opposite Essar's, (Formerly Shell) petrochem plant this afternoon, when a massive black cloud rose up into the sky, all the alarms were going, & the flare stack flame was turned into a 100 foot yellow flame instead of the usual pilot light sort of thing, roads closed around the plant, & fire appliances & chemical / command units still arriving whilst I was on the motorway on my way home.:eek:
