THREE people were led to safety following a gas leak under a road near an industrial estate.

The incident happened at Kites Croft Business Park in Titchfield at around 7pm last night.

Part-time firefighters based in Fareham were sent out to help as the full-time crew were dealing with a four-vehicle accident at junction nine of the M27 near Whiteley.

Repairs were done last night to the gas pipe running under Southampton Road outside the business park.

A spokesman for the National Maritime Operations Centre, where Solent Coastguard operates from, said no-one in the building or any duties were affected.
