Bardsey Fire Update

Several council agencies are actively involved in the aftermath of the gas mains fire on Keswick Lane. Ward councillors have involved senior Leeds City Council officers from a number of departments and all view the issue as a priority to prevent any further problems in the area.

The gas main itself is partially uncovered for monitoring but entirely safe from any tampering. The road surface will be restored shortly. Those involved were particularly appreciative of the fast response of Northern Gas Networks whose teams worked through the night to make the area safe and restore gas.

Four arrests have been made on suspicion of arson but Police are unable to give more information at the moment which could affect a live continuing investigation. Anyone with any further information which may help the inquiry is asked to contact Wetherby Police via the 101 telephone number for non emergency responses.
