I smell gas

If you’re at home, and you can do it safely, turn off your gas supply. The gas mains tap should be beside your gas meter. Move the handle a quarter turn until it’s at 90 degrees from the pipe to shut off the gas supply. If you aren’t sure you can ask a neighbour or friend to help.

Leave your home and call the 24-hour National Gas Emergency Service. Calls to this number are typically FREE but it may depend on your phone contract. Remember to never use a phone near a gas leak – move well away from the property.
