An industrial estate in a Northamptonshire town was evacuated because of a gas leak.

It happened at 11:30 BST near the High March Industrial Estate, off London Road in Daventry, when grass cutters ran over a protruding pipe.

The A45 heading into Daventry from Dodford was closed but it opened again at 15:00 BST.

Northamptonshire Police said the pipe was repaired within a few hours.
