Gas works on Waterloo Road have left hundreds of properties without heating tonight.
Hundreds of homes in Hillside and Birkdale, near to the rugby club, have been left without a working gas supply this evening.
Gas firm Cadent are working to reinstate the supply as soon as possible.
Workmen have dug up a series of access points along Waterloo Road this evening to remedy the issue.
It’s not yet known when the supply will be reintroduced.
It means hundreds of properties are without central heating or hot water as a cold snap moves in this weekend.
