Emergency gas works have started on a street near Norwich after a suspected leak was reported.

Two-way traffic lights have been put in place on Thunder Lane in Thorpe St Andrew, near its junction with Plumstead Road East, by Cadent.

The gas network body has estimated that work is set to continue until Tuesday, December 10 and that it began to find and repair a suspected gas leak.

The goal of the work, according to, is to "trace then excavate to repair gas escape and reinstate where possible".

But Cadent said it was an isolated incident, and not connected to a major scheme to upgrade the city's gas network ongoing down the road at Heartsease.
