Sheffield residents evacuated after gas leak

Residents in the Shiregreen area of Sheffield were awoken by police around 3am on Wednesday morning with a warning to evacuate after a gas leak in Hatfield House Lane. More than 20 people were told to leave their homes and taken to the nearby Concord Sports Centre. Cadent Gas, formerly National Grid Gas, said the leak in Hatfield House Lane at the junction with Belhouse Road was caused by damage to a gas main during street repair works. Hatfield House Lane and Winkley Terrace were closed as a result of the incident. Sheffield Live! reporter Baillor Jalloh spoke to some of the residents affected.
