FEAR of an explosion led to residents being evacuated from their homes in Weston last week.

A gas leak on the Bournville estate meant some flats in Grasmere Drive had to be emptied at 11pm on Friday.

Wales and West Utilities was called out to the area after a householder smelt gas at a property.

A technician was sent out and found a leak, so as a precaution about 20 people were evacuated from their homes.

The residents took shelter at the For All Healthy Living Centre in Lonsdale Avenue until about 6am when they were able to return to their homes.

Anyone who smells gas should call 0800 111999.
