ROADS in Leamington have now reopened following the massive fire at Leeson Polyurethanes on Friday.

This includes the Queensway junctions with Kingsway and Tachbrook Road. It means businesses in the area, including McDonalds and Aldi, are now be accessible by car.

Road closures on Juno Drive and Hermes Close are likely to remain until the end of the Bank Holiday.

Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service remains on site as the fire burns out.

Vehicles can now also be recovered from Hermes Close. Owners are asked to report to officers at the gates to the cordon area, situated at Hermes Close and Juno Drive.

A Warwickshire Police spokespeson said: “Our officers will be on hand to manage this process and more information will follow.

“We are advised that debris on these vehicles will subsequently need to be removed using a jet or machine wash to avoid any risk of irritation to the skin.

“Unfortunately any vehicle parked within the gated compound at Leeson Polyurethanes must stay in situ whilst investigations continue.”

There remains no news of the factory worker unaccounted for following the blaze.
