Road closed off after 'chemical incident' causes residents to vomit

FEARS of a chemical incident were sparked this morning after vomiting residents were rushed to hospital and a South London street put on lockdown.

Fire, police and ambulance services were called to Lee after reports of a smell of an unknown chemical from a number of properties.

There have been five fire engines, paramedics and several police officers dealing with the incident.

It is not yet known what the chemical potentially involved it. Some people have been removed as a precaution.

I could see the emergency services outside my house.

'When I spoke to a policeman he said there were people complaining of irritation, who had been throwing up all morning.

Residents were told by police they were investigating whether the incident was terror-related.

"They've been rushed into hospital".

"It sounds like we might get evacuated from our homes".
