East Ham Sainsbury's petrol station gas pipe ruptures
Emergency services cordoned off a supermarket petrol station in east London after a liquid petroleum gas pipe ruptured.
Firefighters set up a 200m (656ft) exclusion zone around the Sainsbury's forecourt in Clapsgate Lane, East Ham, after the incident at about 0800 GMT.
The forecourt and neighbouring supermarket were evacuated until a specialist engineer could arrive.
The problem was fixed by about 1330 GMT and the store reopened shortly after.
A London Fire Brigade spokesman said: "The delivery pipe was ruptured.
"We created an exclusion zone and stood by until an engineer could arrive."
A Sainsbury's spokesman said: "Our store and petrol station were evacuated this morning, after a possible gas leak was reported.
"These steps were taken as a precautionary measure to ensure the safety and well-being of our customers and colleagues.
"We have since been given permission to reopen the store and the petrol station."
