Gas leak in the centre of Hereford



First published in News

AN emergency gas leak, reported this morning (June 12), has closed a city centre road in Hereford.

Monkmoor Street, off Commercial Road, is expected to remain closed until at least the weekend.

The only business affected, Abbotsfield Funeral Directors, is still open but using a different exit.

The leak is located somewhere between Commercial Road and Canal Road and has been attributed to old pipes which have corroded.

Scaffolding set up in the area had delayed Balfour Beatty workers from accessing the leak.

However as it is a gas leak it has been given high priority and will be fixed as soon as possible.
