Emergency services raced to contain a suspected chemical leak in Glenrothes town centre. At least five fire appliances, four police cars and three ambulances were called to an area in the Postgate after someone reported seeing “blue smoke” rising from a drain near an unoccupied building. Glenrothes Bus Station was evacuated as a precaution and a cordon was set up as witnesses described an overpowering chemical smell in the area. It is understood no one required medical treatment.
