One Dead after Gas Leak at Carlsberg Brewery

One man has died and another is in a serious condition after a gas leak at a Carlsberg brewery in Northampton.

Emergency services attended the scene at 12.30pm yesterday after reports of an industrial accident. A total of 22 people, including two police officers, nine firefighters and 11 factory staff have been admitted to hospital.

Northamptonshire police have said that the victim was in his 40s, while a 51 year old man is in a serious but stable condition. A police statement said:

“Other staff from Carlsberg and emergency service personnel remain at the hospital receiving treatment. Northamptonshire police are working with the health and safety executive to investigate the incident.”

Police added that the leak was confined to the site of the brewery only and there is thought to be no further risk to members of the public.

Julian Momen, chief executive officer of Carlsberg UK, said:

“We are deeply, deeply saddened by today’s tragic incident and subsequent fatality. Our immediate thoughts are with the individual’s family, friends and colleagues at this very difficult time and we will support them in every way we can.

“Our further thoughts and support are with our colleagues and members of the emergency services who are being treated in hospital. One of our colleagues remains in a serious but stable condition. Nothing is more important to us than the safety of everyone working for us.

“We are working closely with the authorities to investigate how this tragic incident occurred and we will be in a position to say more once a full investigation has been concluded.”
