GORINCHEM (ANP) – A man was killed in an explosion at a milk powder factory in Gorinchem late on Wednesday afternoon. The cause of the explosion is not yet known.

The 37-year-old man from Lemmer was doing maintenance on an empty stainless steel tank for a subcontractor when the explosion occurred, said a police spokesperson.

A colleague of the victim just metres away from the explosion was not hurt. Dozens of workers were evacuated, but production at the factory is due to resume on Thursday.
