Updated on 4/12/18 at 7:30 p.m.

Blackbird Road has fully reopened after being closed earlier today due a reported gas leak.

Police were called to the area just before 11.30am today (Tuesday 4 December).

Road works were ongoing at the junction of Blackbird Road and Ravensbridge Drive before the leak was reported.

Blackbird Road was closed while emergency services were on scene responding to the reported leak.

A cordon put in place evacuating properties within a 100m radius of the leak has been lifted and residents are able to return to their homes. A section of Anstey Lane which was also closed has since reopened.

Officers would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding while emergency services dealt with the incident.
