    Good morning Great Denham,

    Yesterday evening, we continued to assist GTC as they worked to restore the gas supply in Great Denham. Our engineers helped by visiting all affected properties and safely switching off the gas supply at the meter.

    Once all houses had been visited, GTC began their investigation into what caused the issue and set about making repairs.

    We will continue to assist GTC in their work to reinstate the gas supply to Great Denham but we would remind all customers that you should NOT try to turn your own gas supply on. An engineer will need to carry out the necessary safety checks before the gas can be turned back on.

    If you have any questions about the incident, please contact GTC directly by calling 0135 924 0363 and selecting Option 1, or by visiting https://www.gtc-uk.co.uk/live-incidents

    Before you let anyone into your home you need to know they are who they say they are, so you should always ask to see their identification card.
