Have your say

ROADS in Holbeach were closed this morning (Wednesday) shortly after 8.50am when an underground mains gas leak was reported.

Police sealed off a stretch of Spalding Road from Wignals Gate to Langwith Drive.

The Back Lane and Northons Lane exits on to Spalding Road were also closed.

Gas company Transco sent an engineering team to repair a faulty valve and the roads reopened mid-morning.

Repair work is expected to continue for a number of hours.
