A suspected “gas leak” has forced the Victoria Centre in Nottingham to be evacuated. Following the incident, Nottingham Fire & Rescue has advised people to “avoid the area.” A Nottingham shopping complex has been evacuated due to a potential “gas leak,” with residents advised to “avoid the vicinity.”

Nottingham Fire and Rescue dispatched four engines to the Victoria Centre soon before 12 p.m. on Saturday morning.

“We have four appliances on scene at Victoria Centre in Nottingham because of a suspected gas leak,” Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service said.

“The building is being evacuated, and we suggest that people avoid the area.”

People are being forced to leave the retail center, according to video from the scene, while firefighters stand guard at the barricade.

“I was roaming around Victoria Centre passing time [before]my sister arrives but then the alarms went off and we got told to evacuate, now there’s fire engines here,” a shopper posted on Twitter.

“Typical that I was trying on trousers at the time,” another tweeted.

“I was roaming around Victoria Centre passing time until my sister arrived,” a third person added, “but then the alarms went off and we were instructed to evacuate, and now there are fire engines here.” Why is it mayhem when all I wanted was a pleasant relaxing day?” Because of the traffic congestion, a nearby college open house has been canceled.
