Gas leak causes the evac­u­a­tion of homes

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A GAS leak in Hayes caused clo­sures in large parts of the town and forced homes to be evac­u­ated in a chaotic morn­ing for the bor­ough.

A Metropoli­tan Po­lice spokesper­son said Sta­tion Road was closed and the area from the band­stand to the YMCA round­about was cor­doned off while ser­vices tried to fix the leak.

Hilling­don Coun­cil tweeted to in­form those trav­el­ling in the bor­ough of the in­ci­dent, which took place on Mon­day af­ter­noon.

Roads re-opened at around 2pm to al­low peo­ple to pass through.
