Residents return to Surrey after gas leak


After spending a night at the temporary accommodation, the residents have been allowed to return to their homes after a gas leak in Surrey. Some 30 people were moved out of eight properties including flats above the Pharmacy in Church Street, Weybridge at about 16:20 BST on September 13, 2012.

According to the Southern Gas Networks the leak was repaired by midnight but the work on the main continued on Friday morning. Due to the leak, the Church Street was closed but after the leak was fixed it was reopened at midnight. The gas levels in the area were monitored throughout the night. The gas leak was due to a fault affecting the electricity cable and gas pipe.
