JC of­fices hit by gas scare

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - BY JC RE­PORTER

THE JC WAS forced to can­cel a lunch it was host­ing for the Is­raeli am­bas­sador Ron Prosor this week be­cause of a gas leak.

The com­pany’s of­fices near Lon­don’s Fleet Street were evac­u­ated early on Tues­day evening af­ter a newly-laid pipe in the street frac­tured and fumes seeped into the cel­lar.

Staff were al­lowed back in more than 17 hours later af­ter re­pair work, which went through the night, was com­pleted.

Food brought in for the event was not wasted. It was sent to Jewish Care’s Rela Gold­hill Lodge in Gold­ers Green, North West Lon­don.
