Elderly residents of a Newtownabbey nursing home had to leave their rooms overnight following fears of a gas leak.

Fire officers were called to the Glebe Road Nursing Home in Carnmoney on Thursday night after a faint smell of gas was reported.

The area was cordoned off. Some of the residents were forced to leave, but others were able to remain inside.

The Fire Service has said that, after checks, no gas has been detected.
