Gas supplies cut in Brinkley Road

Back in the 70's T-Rex's Marc Bolan sung that "Life's a gas" but it certainly wasn't in Brinkley Road last night as there was a problem with gas supplies that could have been due to the heavy rain.

According to the gas man who arrived at Brinkster Central mid-evening to check our supply the problem occurred somewhere around 6.30-7pm in the evening and whether you'd retained your supply seemed to be dependent on whether your boiler was on at that time or whether it came on during that time.If it was the latter some kind of pressure back up drew water into the supply and cut you off.

This left households without gas supplies last night which for some meant no cooking, heating or hot water, which we can agree is some way the other side of mildly annoying. We were one of the lucky ones and didn't suffer any disruption but I'm sure we'll find out this morning how everyone else got on or you can let me know in the comments if you were affected and how good Southern Gas have been at getting your service back on line.
