Emergency at Napier Port

Emergency crews are on the scene at the Port of Napier after the discovery of a chemical leak.

Fire crews and a hazardous materials crew are absorbing the chemicals from the leak which occurred inside drums in a storage container.

The chemical is butanone - a flammable and irritant material - and a 100m radius has been evacuated around the area.

A fire spokesperson says the chemical has not leaked outside of the container.
