Gas supply still cut off to 500 Framlingham homes

More than 500 homes in a Suffolk town are still without gas supplies two days after contractors hit a pipeline.

The mains pipe in Framlingham was damaged on Thursday by contractors. Engineers from across the country were brought in to help restore supplies.

A spokesperson for the National Grid said he was confident supplies would be restored by the end of the day.

"We've got around 50 staff. They have been working very hard to get supplies back on as soon as possible," he said.
