West London gas leak: A5 closed as Police respond to ‘DEADLY’ incident in Maida Vale

Footage apparently taken at the scene shows a number of emergency vehicles parked on a residential street in Maida Vale in London’s Paddington area.

One person was left unconscious with “several” others endangered by the alleged leak reported on social media.

Traffic reports claim the A5 Kilburn High Road between Oxford Road and Maida Vale has been closed in both directions due to an “emergency services incident.”

Express.co.uk has contacted the Metropolitan Police for more details on this ongoing incident.

Meanwhile, another Twitter user claimed at around 00:30 that petrol had been poured at the entrance of Tollgate House in Maida Vale.

They said emergency services had been in the area “for hours” and that Kilburn High Road had been closed. 

It is not clear at this point whether the two incidents are connected.
