People living near to a chemical company in Low Moor are being told not to panic when its emergency siren sounds next week.

BASF at Low Moor will carry out a test-sounding of its off-site alarm at 10am and at 8pm on Thursday, June 5.

The siren, which produces a sound of increasing and decreasing pitch, will operate for one minute on each occasion. The company, based in Cleckheaton Road, said there is no need for members of the public to take any action.
