Simon Williams, Director of Community and Housing said:
‘Fumes from an electrical substation adjacent to Wimbledon Library have caused the library to be evacuated. The fumes in the library could potentially cause respiratory problems. Wimbledon Library will remain closed today and we are waiting for further information to confirm when the library will be re-opened.’
This has caused problems in the Wimbledon area for traffic. Please avoid the area whilst the fire brigade attend the incident.
