Holiday park evacuated in chemical leak; ECHO SHORTS.

AROUND 40 people, including a three-yearold child, were treated by paramedics after a chemical leak in a swimming pool of a holiday park.

Guests dressed only in their swimming costumes were evacuated as the resort went into "lockdown" after the incident.

Holidaymakers suffered from breathing problems, although no-one is thought to be in a serious condition after the leak at around 2.30pm yesterday at Wild Duck Holiday Park, in Belton, near Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.

Tom Cassidy, a spokesman for Haven Holidays, which runs the resort, said 40 people were originally treated by paramedics and 33 "walking wounded" were taken to three different hospitals as a "precaution".
