Building evacuated due to high levels of carbon monoxide
We received reports of high levels of carbon monoxide in the air during a motorsport event in Stafford at the weekend.
A member of the public visiting the event at the Staffordshire County Showground, on Weston Road, on Saturday (3 January), called us at 1.45pm. She reported feeling unwell inside the main arena.
We evacuated the main building as a precaution after our equipment recorded high levels of carbon monoxide in the area. Advice was also given to organisers of the event and landowners.
