Around two-thirds of Gubbins Lane in Harold Wood is closed due to a suspected gas leak.

A section of the road from the mini-roundabout by Harold Wood Park up to The Drive could be shut for as long four hours, it has been claimed.

Residents trying to get to Harold Wood Station are being diverted by the authorities, including Havering Police and fire crews.

Carol Butler, who lives just off The Drive, said: “My husband came home and said he could smell gas earlier, then when he tried to get to work at about 10.30am the road was closed. I had to drive him to Gidea Park Station to get to work.

“[Police] said the road could be closed for as long as four hours.”
