Pembroke gas leak: Eight Gwilliam Court homes evacuated

Eight properties were evacuated following a gas leak at a house in Pembrokeshire.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service said a pipe outside one of the properties was severed in Monkton, Pembroke, on Saturday.

The alarm was raised in Gwilliam Court shortly after 14:30 GMT and the home and seven adjacent properties were evacuated and police set up a cordon.

It is understood people have now returned to their homes.

The fire service said a fine spray was used to disperse a gas cloud that had formed, and the main was eventually capped by a utilities firm.

The fire service sent a crew from Pembroke Dock, who left the scene at 15:50 GMT.
