    The damage to the gas main happened at around 7am on Sunday, 11 March.
    Engineers are on-site, working to restore supplies as quickly as possible. Engineers will need to visit every property to turn off supplies while repair works are under way.
    Only when all the water has been removed from the gas main can we start the process of reconnecting each property with a visit from one of our engineers.

    The following roads are affected:
    KNOCKHOLT ROAD
    CHURCH ROAD
    POUND LANE
    MAIN ROAD
    SOUTH DRIVE
    OLD LONDON ROAD
    HALSTEAD LANE
    BLUEBERRY LANE
    HARROW ROAD
    CHEVENING ROAD
    STATION ROAD
    PARKSIDE
    SHOREHAM LANE
    MEDWAY
    THE STABLES
    RUSHMORE HILL

    At this time it is difficult to estimate exactly how long this work will take. We will keep you informed of progress and we would like to thank you for your patience, updates will also be available on our website as this incident continues.
    It is very important that you do not try to use gas while our engineers are dealing with this emergency.
