Dec 22 2009 By Joanne Douglas
TRADERS had to be evacuated from Kirkburton after a gas leak on North Road today.
Shops were forced to close during their busiest week as United Utilities workers battled to fix the gas leak.
Four homes, two of which were vacant, and three businesses were affected and the occupants of two of the properties were evacuated over night.
A spokeswoman for Untied Utilities apologised for the inconvenience and said the gas leak had now been fixed and that the occupants of the homes and businesses were being allowed back.
Full story in Wednesday's paper.
