Gas leak at industrial estate


AN INDUSTRIAL unit had to be evacuated and roads closed at an industrial estate earlier this morning.

It followed a gas leak on Lancaster Road, Carnaby Industrial Estate, which was dealt with by police, fire and gas supply officials.

It happened around 6.45am when a Transco lorry reversed into a gas box outside Ideal Building Systems Ltd close to the Van Masters roundabout on Lancaster Road.

Staff at Ideal Building Systems Ltd were evacuated as a precaution and the road up to the roundabout near the former Sara Lee factory was closed as was the entrance to Bridlington Bay Road from the A165 roundabout at Wilsthorpe.

However, only short delays were caused to workers and delivery vehicles as roads reopened around 8.30am, leaving gas supply technicians to repair the broken pipe.
