Do you smell gas?
(⚠ SAFTEY WARNING ⚠)
If you think you have a gas leak, you need to turn off your gas supply at the meter.
Find your emergency control valve. In newer houses, the emergency control valve is normally outside with the gas meter - in a meter box. If it's not there, try looking under the stairs, beneath the kitchen sink or in the garage.
Turn the handle so the lever is at 90 degrees to the upright gas pipe.
Open all your doors and windows to let gas out and some fresh air in. Don't switch anything electrical on or off. Put out all naked flames. Don't smoke, strike matches or do anything which could make the gas catch fire. If you have any electrical security entry phones or locks, don't use them. Open your doors manually. Immediately call 0800 111 999.
