Tendring: Pub evacuated after gas leak

Drinkers at a village pub had to be evacuated to a nearby village hall after a gas leak at the building.

They were called after LP gas began escaping from a 2,000 litre tank.

A number of homes next to the pub also had to evacuated and a 100 metre exclusion zone was put up while engineers fixed the leak.

The leak was finally secured at 8.25pm.
