There are more than 130 tourists and the locals have been hospitalised in the United Kingdom, after they complained of respiratory problems and difficulties, following a suspecting chemical leakage along the south-east East Sussex coast.
Birling Gap beach had been expatriated after the people reported breathing difficulties, stinging eyes and nausea, when the mist appeared.
The emergency services in UK are treating the people at Birling Gap and clearing the area by the Sussex Police, confirming that they were investigating the cause of the incident.
The police said that the people living along the coastal area have been advised to keep doors and windows shut and to move away from the Birling Gap area in particular.
The police also issued a warning to the tourists not to head to the coastal part.
The police also issued a warning that the plume of gas appears to be shifting eastwards towards Hastings.
The “mist” is thought to have come in from the sea, with previous incidents involving something coming over from an industrial unit in France.
About 233 patients had been treated at Eastbourne District General Hospital. The officials said the effects were in the emission of chlorine gas.
