FIREFIGHTERS were called to a house in Hartlepool today following reports of a gas leak.

Two fire engines from Stranton Fire Station went to Blake Street, off Hart Lane, following reports that gas was leaking from a property there.

Crews arrived at the scene shortly after 12.30pm and isolated the gas supply until engineers from the gas suppliers arrived.

They left the scene about 45 minutes later leaving gas workers to permanently turn-off the supply.
