Allington Drive – Gas Explosion

December 12, 2017

The following message has been received from the local police beat team:-

Incident in Birstall yesterday (gas explosion, 42 Allington Drive).
As you know many residents were evacuated from their homes and some left their homes of their own accord not wishing to return that evening, in case of any further issues, leaving us with many empty houses. Most residents wanted to and were allowed to return later in the evening.
For this reason could I please ask that a message be sent out to the residents to be extra vigilant and at the same time look out for any suspicious activity around the empty houses in the incident location?
There will be police presence around the area over the next few days, but any help and assistance from the residents would be greatly appreciated.

We thank you very much for your help at this time.
