Sutton Coldfield homes evacuated after gas leak
A dozen residents had to leave their homes in Sutton Coldfield overnight after a fire caused a pipe to split and leak gas.

Firefighters were called to Augustine Grove, in Sutton Coldfield, where a shed, a fence and roof fascias at two properties were on fire.

A man who was trying to fight the fire was taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation while a woman was led to safety.

Gas supplies were made safe by Transco, the fire service said.

The fire was not believed to be suspicious, a spokesman said.
