Part of a Glasgow road has been locked down after a contractor damaged a gas main.
Emergency services were alerted to the incident in Garscube Road at around midday on Thursday.
Glasgow City Council said parts of the road will remain closed until SGN engineers isolate the gas escape and perform repairs.
Motorists have been advised to avoid the area.
A SGN spokesman said: “We’re carrying out emergency repairs to our gas main in Garscube Road, Glasgow, following damage by a third party.
“It’s too early to say at this stage how long repairs will take to complete.”
The incident happened at the junction of Corn Street, near to Abercorn Secondary School in the Cowcaddens area of the city.
SGN advised that Garscube Road has been temporarily closed between its junctions with Possil Road and Phoenix Road/Dobbie’s Loan “for everyone’s safety”.
A diversion has been put in place for northbound motorists via St George’s Road and for southbound motorists via Possil Road and Craighall Road.
A council spokesperson said: “It has been confirmed that a contractor has damaged a gas main and that Garscube Road will remain closed until SGN can isolate the gas escape and perform repairs.
“Road users should avoid the area if possible.”
