Belfast nursery cleared after gas leak

Children aged three and under have had to be evacuated after a gas leak in north Belfast.

The children from Our Lady’s Toddler Group on Oldpark Terrace were moved at about 12pm yesterday after a nearby shop owner reported smelling gas.

Cordons were put in place between Cliftonville Circus and Cliftonville Crescent and motorists were advised to avoid the area. No one had to leave their homes.

Last night police said their investigations into the gas leak are ongoing.
