A FAULTY fridge unit was leaking gas at a supermarket in Taunton yesterday (July 16).

Firefighters from Taunton, as well as support crews from Bridgwater and an operational assurance officer, attended the incident at Morrisons.

The store was evacuated, and crews isolated the gas and made it safe for staff to continue working.

"An engineer was called by the store manager so the large fridge unit could be repaired," said a spokesperson for Taunton Fire Station.
