Suspected gas leak at Battery Pier

Tue, 10 Jun 2014

Fire crews have been stood down after attending reports of a possible gas leak at Battery Pier.

A total of five appliances were deployed from both Douglas and Laxey fire stations - including three pumps, an aerial ladder platform and a foam carrier.

A gas alarm had been activated due to vapours from a spirirt tank at Manx Petroleums.

However a full check of the tank and the systems show there was no leak but due to their being no air movement in the area simply a build up of vapour.

The Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service says emergency procedures for the area worked well.
