What do I do if I smell gas or there is a gas leak?

If you smell gas:

  • Turn off the gas meter by turning the valve at right angles to the gas pipe.
  • Open all windows and doors and keep them open until the leak is repaired.
  • Don't smoke or use electrical switches, matches or naked flames.
  • Call the National Grid Emergency Line 0800 111 999.
  • Make sure someone's at home when the emergency engineer arrives.
  • Call the Fire Service on 999 if fire breaks out.
