Emergencies

What to do if you have a power cut or smell gas?

The electricity and gas networks in the UK are designed to be very resilient to protect the vital services they provide to people across the country. Issues ranging from severe weather to thieves stealing metal can make maintaining this reliability a greater challenge for engineers.
