Basingstoke gas leak closes roads and school

A primary school was evacuated and a number of roads closed because of a major gas leak in Hampshire.

Rucstall Primary School in Basingtoke was forced to close while engineers repaired a gas main at the Black Dam Roundabout.

The M3 exit slip roads were also shut in both directions at J6, A30 (Basingstoke) and the A30 London Road was closed for several hours.

Hampshire Constabulary said the roads reopened shortly before 13:30 BST.
