They added that the leak had been confirmed to be chlorine and had been contained.

It is understood that the building was evacuated as a precaution and police advised people to stay away from the area to avoid a buildup of traffic in the surrounding area.

Last month, nearly 30 people were hospitalized with breathing difficulties after a similar incident when a “large amount of chlorine gas” leaked into the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London.
