June 1st

A very sad day to people of UK and to entire world

The Nypro chemical plant in Flixborough, Humberside was destroyed by a massive explosion on this day in 1974
A temporary pipe containing cyclohexane caught fire and burst. It left 28 people dead, 36 injured and around 1800 nearby buildings damaged. Consequently, UK government regulations in hazardous industrial processes were significantly tightened.
