People in a Cambridgeshire village told to stay indoors following a chlorine gas leak at a water treatment plant have been told the area is now safe.
The leak happened at Anglian Water's Grafham Water site in West Perry at about 08:00 BST.
A spokesman said the gas had now been safely dispersed through "a controlled release".
The leak had been contained to one building and warnings were issued as a precaution, he said.
Anglian Water said the risk to people living within 1,300m (4,380ft) of the plant has been "minimal", but apologised for any inconvenience caused.
