If you can smell gas or think there's a gas leak
Go outside, then call the National Gas Emergency Service on 0800 111 999 to report a suspected gas leak. They'll advise you from there.
Stay safe by following this advice:
- open your doors and windows so the gas can escape
- don't smoke or use matches or cigarette lighters
- don't turn light switches or anything electrical on or off, including mobile phones
- don't go into confined spaces, such as small cellars or attics
- if you can, turn off your gas supply at the meter and leave it switched off until you're sure it's safe to turn it back on again
Don't go back inside until the National Gas Emergency Service have given you the all clear.
