A man has been treated in hospital after a chemical spill at a factory in Flintshire.

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is investigating what happened at the Albany Molecular Research Inc site in Greenfield.

Lara Cubley, regulatory officer at NRW, said the spill was contained within a building.

She added action would be taken if the site's environmental permit had been breached.

The man taken to hospital at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd was kept in overnight as a precaution.

It is not known what chemical was involved.
