Engineers repair 'large' gas leak that closed Charing Cross station
Engineers say priority is to reopen Charing Cross and Waterloo East stations in London
Engineers have repaired a “large” gas leak that caused the closure of London’s Charing Cross station, disrupting travel for thousands of commuters on Tuesday morning.
Gas supplier Cadent said its priority was to reopen the station as soon as possible after firefighters took almost 1,500 people to safety and helped police deal with a ruptured gas main in Craven Street, off the Strand near Trafalgar Square.
UPDATE: #LondonCharingCross is likely to be closed for some time following a gas leak nearby. The exclusion zone is in place until the emergency services are satisfied it can be lifted. For more information & to check your journey https://t.co/Y82MoNc4dU pic.twitter.com/GSzlmhmJYY
