Part of Broad Street, March, remains closed today following a suspected gas leak.  

No entrance signs and barriers have been put across the section of Broad Street turning left from Station Road. 

A number of Cadent service vehicles are in Broad Street and cones have been put around a section of the road.  

However, pedestrians continue to walk freely and traffic has not been banned from using the other side of the road.
