Gas supplies restored after water leak

GAS supplies have been fully restored after a burst water main cut off supply to homes.

National Grid said a burst water main led to properties on St Nicholas Walk in Rawmarsh being without gas from Tuesday (April 11) until Saturday.

A spokesman said supplies had been restored to every property it had access to after more than 25,000 litres of water were pumped from gas mains on Wednesday.

He added: “Our engineers worked closely with the local water company to resolve the situation and restore gas supplies as soon as possible.

“Extra engineers were drafted in from across the country to assist and thousands of litres of water have been pumped of our pipes.

“Engineers have now left site; however, we have left contact details for those properties to which we have not been able to gain access. 

“We would ask the residents to call us on 0845 835 1111 so we can send an engineer out to switch the gas back on and carry out the necessary safety checks on the gas appliances and the gas meter.”
