A dairy facility accidentally released 30m3 of water containing ammonia (NH3) into a river.
Pollution was detected in the river four days after the release. About 20km downstream was contaminated. 3.5 tons of dead fish were collected.
Estimated loss to the business was £210,000
Swimming pool chemicals merged with cleaning agent at a hotel spa facility.
The merged chemicals gave rise to a mustard gas claim, causing potential danger to employees and guests.
Chubb managed the on-site clean up.

A heating oil tank attached to a logistics warehouse developed a fracture in an underground pipe.
Over time fuel oil seeped from the tank into the surrounding soil and groundwater, contaminating both the logistics warehouse land and the neighbouring business. The extent of the contamination was not realised until oil was noted in a nearby watercourse.
