125 homes in village hit 
by loss of gas

Have your say

ENGINEERS were last night starting to restore gas supplies to 125 homes near Huddersfield.

Gas supplies had been turned off at several streets in the village of Marsden after water got into the main system.

The roads affected were Carrs Road, Carrs Sidestreet 1 and 2, Meltham Road, Woods Avenue and Woods Terrace.

Electric hotplates and heaters were delivered to vulnerable people left without gas.

A spokesman for Northern Gas Networks said engineers were working hard to resolve the problem and that gas supplies had been restored to some homes.

Members of the public were invited to drop into the village’s Mechanics Institute for further information and refreshments.

Kirklees Council said staff were helping the elderly and other vulnerable people.
