Gas emergency?

Smell gas? Think you might have a gas escape? Concerned an appliance is leaking carbon monoxide?

Call 0800 111 999 now -
Free, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

You won't be charged for them coming to check a leak, making it safe, or repairing your meter.

Read about carbon monoxide safety.

Next, do:

  • Do open all windows and doors to get rid of the gas.
  • Do turn the gas off if you’ve left it on, or the pilot light has gone out.
  • Do turn the main gas tap to 'OFF'. (Your supply is off when the ridged line on the spindle is across the pipe.)

Make sure you don't:

  • Don't turn any electricity switches on and off, including door bells (you can still use your telephone to call the emergency number).
  • Don't smoke, or use matches, or naked flames.
  • Don't leave it to someone else to call - you could be putting yourself or others at risk. If in doubt, phone the National Gas Emergency Service number on 0800 111 999.
