Framlingham's heating back on
RESIDENTS who braved one of the coldest nights of the winter without heating are relieved now a Suffolk town's gas supply has been reconnected.
RESIDENTS who had to brave one of the coldest nights of the winter without heating have breathed a sigh of relief now a Suffolk town's gas supply has been reconnected.
Nearly 1,000 homes in Framlingham were left without gas on Tuesday after an equipment failure led to an automatic shutdown of the mains system serving the town.
But after an around-the-clock operation the town has been reconnected.
The problem started late on Monday night when a safety device, was automatically activated, cutting off the supply to more than 900 properties.
