Some RAF Lakenheath residents lose gas supply

RAF MILDENHALL, England — Engineers were working Tuesday to restore the gas supply to some residences on RAF Lakenheath, which was cut earlier because of a reported leak.

The base announced on Facebook that work to restore the gas supply to Liberty Village would take from 17 to 21 hours.

Officials isolated the gas supply on Monday morning after an odor was reported near the village’s gas tanks, according to the post. This caused the system’s pressure to drop and forced contractors to cut gas flow to individual housing units later in the day.

A base spokesman described the leak as minor.
