Major gas leak following motor vehicle collision




Emergency services were called to an incident at an Auckland school overnight when a car collided with a gas line causing a major leak.

Police and fire crews were called to the incident at the Blind and Low Vision Education Network NZ Homai Campus school in Manukau around midnight.

The driver hit the two-inch gas main valve which was above the ground.

Police cordoned off the area to investigate.

There were no reported injuries and the job has since been closed, said a fire spokesperson.

The Blind and Low Vision Education Network NZ (BLENNZ) is a school made up of a national network of educational services for children and young people who are blind, deaf or have low vision in New Zealand.
