Emergency services were called to Church Street in Wellington this afternoon following a report of a gas leak.
The area was evacuated, with a cordon in place for the safety of the public and residents while gas engineers worked to locate and repair the leak.
Police worked with colleagues from Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service and Cadnet engineers to minimise disruption.
The cordon has now been lifted.
UPDATE: The road is now open following earlier gas leak and evacuated residents allowed back into their homes. Thank you to everyone affected for your cooperation.— West Mercia Police (@WMerciaPolice) May 24, 2019
