Engineers from Northern Gas Networks are working on a reported gas escape on a medium pressure main on Anlaby Road, Hull. It is believed that a third party contractor working on site struck the main with their equipment.
At present, engineers are monitoring the situation and carrying out investigation work to locate the exact source of the leak. The Fire Brigade is in attendance as a precaution.
In order to carry out the repair work safely and efficiently, the emergency services have closed the road in both directions.
