Gas leak leads to evacuations

Cooper Road, Thornbury

Around 10 business premises had to be evacuated after a gas leak.

Two fire engines from Thornbury attended the incident and crews worked alongside police to carry out evacuations of the affected premises and to set up a cordon in the area.

The leak was isolated by the gas board and firefighters remained in the area on standby until the cordon was lifted and those evacuated could return to their work places.
