Evacuation At Holiday Park After Chemical Leak

Three children have been treated in hospital after a chemical leak at a holiday park in Norfolk.

Three ambulances and a rapid response car were called to Woodland Holiday Park, Trimingham, after the resort's swimming pool was evacuated.

Paramedics found a number of people who were coughing and complaining of sore throats and stomach aches.

Lee Fox, from the East of England Ambulance Service, said: "We assessed everyone to find out the severity of their conditions and decided three children needed to be taken to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital.

"A family of three were also treated and decided to make their own way to hospital."

Woodland Holiday Park, near the seaside town of Cromer, is described on its website as a "cosy retreat" in a coastal setting.

Facilities at the park, which contains cabins, lodges and static caravans, include an indoor pool and sauna, a fishing lake and children's play area.

No one at the resort was available for comment when contacted by Sky News.
