Gas-leak probe af­ter van strikes house

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - LOCAL | NEWS -

The A96 Aberdeen to In­ver­ness road was closed yes­ter­day morn­ing af­ter a van col­lided with a house.

Po­lice shut the route be­tween For­res and Alves in Mo­ray fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent at 7.35am, amid fears the van had hit a gas sup­ply.

Gas en­gi­neers were called out to the prop­erty at Scots­burn to de­ter­mine whether there was any risk of a leak.

Po­lice con­firmed that no one was in­jured in the in­ci­dent and the road was re­opened shortly af­ter­wards.

A po­lice spokes­woman said: “We re­ceived a re­port of a van col­lid­ing with a house.

“It was a mi­nor ac­ci­dent but the road was closed while the gas board checked to see if there was a leak.”
