Help

Hundreds of people were left stranded overnight after a fire at a gas facility in St Helier.

Jersey Fire service said people living within the roads immediately surrounding the fire had to be evacuated and were unable to return until the morning.

Chief of Police Mike Bowron said it would be a "grossly inconvenient night for many people".

Those affected have been told to visit the Town Hall in St Helier or call the support line on 01534 612000 to find out if they can return home.
