Crews attend report of LPG leak

Highwood Lane, Cribbs Causeway, Bristol

Fire crews were called after a possible leak of liquid petroleum gas (LPG) was reported at a filling station.

Firefighters from Patchway, Avonmouth and Brislington fire stations attended following concerns that a storage tank on the site was leaking the fuel. Crews immediately set up a 100 metre cordon forcing the closure and evacuation of the petrol station and a nearby car wash.

Two firefighters in breathing apparatus worked to isolate the main tank from the pumps which caused the leak to cease. The incident was then handed over to the site's managers.
