Acid leak after tank collapses at Willenhall factory

A tank containing hydrochloric acid has collapsed at a West Midlands factory.

The tank at Watery Lane Industrial Estate, Willenhall, contained an estimated 35,000 litres.

No-one is believed to have been hurt and the cause of the collapse is yet to be determined, the fire service said.

Some acid has leaked into Waddens Brook, a tributary of the River Tame.
