Motorists are being urged to avoid the North Road area of St Helens after the road was closed because of a suspected gas leak.

Emergency services and engineers are currently dealing with the incident, near the YMCA building.

It is believed a car crashed into piping, causing a leak.

A council spokesman said: “The incident occurred at the lower end of North Road and it may soon be closed to traffic to enable repair works to be carried out.”
