Emergency services were called out to an explosion on Colwick Industrial Estate earlier this morning (20)
Police received reports of a gas explosion and collapse of a tanker just before 10.15am today.
Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue teams and ambulance services also attended the incident.
It’s believed the explosion took place at BioDynamic – which converts food waste into energy.
Two men have been taken to hospital with serious injuries.
Officers secured the scene and are working with partners to establish the cause of what occurred – but confirmed it wasn’t terror-related.
The Environment Agency were also at the scene earlier.
They posted on Twitter: “We are in Colwick following the reported explosion, responding to slurry pollution from anaerobic digester.”
UPDATE: Police tonight have said they are not treating the incident as suspicious and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is now dealing with the matter in its entirety.
