Stirling properties evacuated following gas leak

A gas leak caused by demolition work in Stirling has led to road closures and properties being evacuated.

Stirling Council said it believed the leak in Springkerse happened after a gas pipe was cut in an empty building in Kerse Road.

Part of Kerse Road and Whitehouse Road were closed, with diversions in place.

The council said the gas leak posed no danger to the public and that Scottish Gas Networks and the emergency services were attending the scene.
