Gas leak residents start to return home

Residents of Weymouth Terrace in east London are still waiting for gas to disperse from their homes, following a leak which saw them evacuated at 2am this morning. 100 people were taken to a local community centre, and Hackney Council say a third of those have now been allowed back into their homes. But safety checks are continuing, and it's not yet known if some of the evacuees may need to spend the night elsewhere.
