Engineers from Northern Gas Networks have restored supplies to 200 customers in the Moldgreen and Tandem areas of Huddersfield, after a burst water main caused water to enter the gas network.
As of this morning (1 October) 200 of the 297 customers affected are back on gas with a further 15 properties connected to up to the meter. Engineers now need access to these properties so that they can safely turn the gas back on.
Engineers have worked through the night to remove the water from the main supplying the remaining properties and expect to be able to begin to restore supplies later this afternoon.
Northern Gas Networks has made electric heaters and portable cookers available to those customers who need them and dedicated Customer Care Officers are on hand to ensure that vulnerable customers are looked after. A customer drop in centre is open at The Stag Inn, 456 Wakefield Road, Huddersfield where customers can get the latest information on the progress.
Northern Gas Networks Customer Care team is available on 0845 634 0508.
Anyone who smells gas should call the National Gas Emergency Service on 0800 111 999.
