Hundreds of people will not be able to return to their homes overnight after a fire broke out at a gas facility in St Helier.

Homes, schools and businesses were evacuated and roads sealed off after a back-up gas holder caught fire.

Firefighters are tackling the blaze at Gas Place and Jersey Fire Service has urged people to stay out of the area.

A Jersey Police spokeswoman said they were dealing with a fire and a gas leak and there was a risk of explosion.
