One fire engine attended from Widnes


Shortly before 2pm firefighters received a report of a gas leak at a petrol station in Green Oaks Way, Widnes.

The station had been evacuated due to the leak from a petrol tank's filling value.

Firefighters monitored the amount of gas in the area using specialist equipment.

An on-site specialist isolated the gas supply to the valve.

As they did so, firefighters stood by with foam in case a fire broke out.

Once the gas supply had been isolated and firefighters were satisfied that the petrol station was safe, they left the scene.

They were in attendance for around 45 minutes.
