Smell gas, or believe a gas pipe has been damaged? Please call the freephone National Gas Emergency Number: 0800 111999.
Your safety is our utmost priority so please follow the below advice:
- Turn off the gas supply at the meter using the emergency control valve
- Open doors and windows to ventilate the property
- Put out naked flames and don’t smoke
- Don’t turn off or on any power or light switches
- Don’t use any door entry phones or other electrical entry/security devices
- Don’t enter the cellar if the smell of gas is in there, instead please wait outside or with a neighbour
Once reported, our emergency service provider will be with you in 1 to 2 hours. Please remain available until they arrive.
If you have a power cut, first check whether your neighbours have also lost their supply.
If your neighbours DO NOT have power:
- Call us on the above number or call 105.
If your neighbours DO have power:
- Check your trip switch. If the trip switch is still on, call the emergency number. If the trip switch is off, switch it back on
- If it switches back off, one of your appliances may be faulty so unplug all appliances and then reset the trip switch
- If only part of your supply has failed, and the trip will not reset, there may be a fault with your internal wiring. Please contact a registered electrician
- Check your electricity meter. Is the dial/display working? If not, call us
