Council staff respond to major gas leak on Walworth Road

22 July 2019

Southwark Council staff are currently working with emergency services to deal with a major gas leak on Walworth Road. A cordon is in place so please avoid the area unless absolutely necessary. Roads in the area are closed and this will have an impact on traffic in the area. Thameslink has also suspended services from Blackfriars to Herne Hill as the tracks run past the affected area.

A rest centre has been set up at The Castle Leisure Centre and council staff are supporting affected residents.
