Engineers from Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the North of England’s gas distributor, have today continued work to restore normal gas supplies in the Brandy Carr Road and Batley Road area of Wakefield.

200 properties are currently without gas following damage to a gas main on Thursday evening.

If you have been affected and your gas supply hasn’t yet been turned off at the meter, please contact NGN’s Customer Care team on 0800 040 7766, option 3 and we will arrange for an engineer to come straight out.

NGN has set up a community drop in centre at Kirkhamgate Village Hall, Brandy Carr Road, Wakefield, WF2 0RS where the team is on hand to provide information and advice.  Heaters, hotplates and vouchers for hot food and drinks are also available for customers that need them.

Russ Kay, Business Operations Lead for Northern Gas Networks, said: “I’d like to thank our customers for their continued patience while we work to restore gas supplies to customers in the Brandy Carr Road area of Wakefield.

“Work is progressing well and we now need to access the remaining few properties to safety turn off gas supplies at the meter, before we can start work to reconnect the gas to the main.  If our engineers have not yet turned your property at the meter, please contact our Customer Care team on 0800 040 7766, option 3.

Anyone that smells gas or suspects carbon monoxide should call the National Gas Emergency Service immediately on 0800 111 999. This line is in operation 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
