A gas main was damaged at the surgery

A cordon has been lifted around 40 homes and businesses near a Berkshire doctors' surgery after a car crash damaged a gas main.

People were evacuated from buildings after a Skoda Fabia crashed into the front of the surgery in Brookside Close, Lower Earley, near Reading.

A 150m cordon was put in place after the crash on Wednesday morning.

Nobody else was hurt and emergency services were working to clear the accident and reopen nearby roads.

Gipsy Lane at the junctions with Silverdale Road and Rushey Way reopened in the afternoon. The cordon on Brookside Close was lifted later.
