Norwich: Flats Evacuated After Gas Leak

Residents have been evacuated from a block of flats in the Pilling Park Road area of Norwich following reports of a gas leak.

Police were alerted shortly before 9am today Friday 29 June 2012 and a 100m cordon has been put in place as a matter of precaution.
