Fire control mobilised 2 fire engines and an Environmental Protection Unit to a report of a smell of gas outside a domestic property.

On arrival crews confirmed there was a gas leak and several properties had also lost power. Crews used gas detection equipment to try and establish the cause of the leak and requested the attendance of the Gas Board and Western Power.

Crews were unable to locate the source of the leak and have now left the incident in the hands of the utility companies.
