HUNDREDS of homes in Marsden are without gas - on the coldest morning of the year.

Supplies were cut off yesterday evening and remained off overnight.

Kirklees Council has opened an emergency centre in the Marsden Mechanics Institute to provide warmth and shelter for dozens of local families.

The hall opened  this morning as an emergency centre to enable people to get warm and get a hot drink.

The utility company is currently working on restoring the service.
