Dozens of people were evacuated from a bus and railway station because of a suspected gas leak.

A cordon was put in place around the Hull Paragon Interchange in the city centre at about 15:40 BST after reports of a smell of gas.

Humberside Police said the station had been evacuated as a precaution but had since reopened.

Police said traffic was still running slowly "while dealing with the backlog".
