The gas leak chaos you reported was not the first

13 April, 2018

St Martin’s Lane

• YOU reported on the major gas leak on Tuesday April 3, (Gas firm apologises for leak chaos after hundreds were evacuated, April 6).

There was an earlier major gas leak on the Thursday before the Easter break and I was on my site in St Martin’s Lane and the street was cordoned off.

The responsible authorities were unable to rectify the fault and the police advised us to evacuate the buildings.
But I was at the site and the residents were in the building and we were stuck inside.

I am a former Gurkha and I have been working here as a concierge since 2007. I am still trying to cope with my civilian way of life. “Health and safety” is just for the papers and not in action.
