Engineers have been working throughout the weekend in an attempt to restore gas supplies to a number of properties in Canal Road, Bradford.

Northern Gas Networks have been trying to fix the problem, in partnership with engineers from Yorkshire Water.

On Saturday, football fans were urged to set off for the Bradford City football match a little earlier due to the emergency repair work to the gas main in Canal Road, after water from a damaged water main made its way into a gas pipe.

The engineers worked throughout the night between Saturday and Sunday and remained on-site yesterday.

The problem has affected the gas supply to around 40 residential properties and 100 commercial and industrial buildings in the area.
