A British hospital has been placed on lockdown following a “chemical incident” sparked by a woman who brought a broken container.
A witness said they were waiting in the A&E department of Barnet Hospital when the woman came in with the item and was immediately rushed outside by staff.
Met Police are at the scene and no one is being allowed in or out.
Daily Star Online quotes one fristrated patient as saying: “People here were getting upset but they were panicking and upsetting others.
“The staff have been brilliant at calming people.”
