Merseyside Police in conjunction with Cadent are currently in attendance at a suspected gas leak on Tunnel Road, Wavertree.
Officers were called at around 3.45pm after reports of a leak which is thought to be underground and affecting a number of properties. A cordon has been put in place as a precautionary measure whilst the incident is ongoing.
A small number of houses have been evacuated as a precautionary measure and road closures have been put in place on Durning Road, Wavertree Road and Spekeland Tunnel.
There is no estimated time for the removal of the road closures and evacuations. Cadent currently has engineers on-site to make everything safe and carry out any repairs. Officers would like to thank members of the public and motorists for their co-operation at this time.
