Bearsden homes still without gas supply after water floods network

HOMES in Bearsden were without gas for the second night in a row after a flooded gas network shut off supplies in the area on Friday.

On Saturday night it was said that 140 properties in East Dunbartonshire were still awaiting.

The problems, which started late on Friday morning, affected more than 300 homes across the area after more than 16,000 liters of water entered the system.

Engineers in the area worked through the night on Friday and in the morning.

Westerton Primary, which is turning into a customer center for the Scottish Gas Networks, provides hot plates and heaters for those still experiencing problems. These were prioritised for vulnerable groups, including the elderly and those with children.

It was expected that it would be removed by Sunday.

In a statement on Saturday evening, Scottish Gas Networks said: "Our engineers have made tremendous progress this afternoon and there are now 140 homes in Bearsden still without gas.

"Tonight, our engineers continue to work to remove the remaining water so we can restore more gas supplies."

It was announced on Saturday night. After the first 24 hours, residents will receive £ 30 for each subsequent 24-hour period without a supply.
