A number of properties in East Dene were evacuated and a police cordon put in place this afternoon after concerns about gas.

Central Avenue, Green Road and Moor Road were closed after a gas engineer raised concerns about the safety of a property.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesperson said that “as a precaution the roads were closed & some residents evacuated.”

“We want to reassure the local community that the road closures and evacuations are a precautionary measure at this time – there has not been an explosion.”

The roads re-opened just after 1:30pm and those evacuated could return to their homes.
