The Ministry of Defence facility in Glasgow was evacuated after discovery of ‘chemical drum’ outside.
It is understood that the area was promptly cordoned off by police, who said the liquid found was being analysed as a “precautionary measure”.
In a statement, the fire service said:
“We are in attendance at Crimea Street following a report of bottles of fluid having been found outside Kentigern House. The call came shortly after 10:45am and firefighters and police officers have since cordoned off the area as a precautionary measure while a scientific adviser and our technical support team analyse the liquid.
There are currently five fire engines at the scene, including the specialist Environmental Protection Unit from Hamilton. No injuries have been reported.”
The Army Personnel Centre provides assistance to Army units, outside agencies and the general public who are enquiring about the disclosure of information held on officers and soldiers.
More on this as it develops.
