First published in Echo News

HUNDREDS of staff members were evacuated from a Basildon company following reports of a gas leak.

Firefighters were called to the Gilbarco factory and office in Crompton Close shortly before 10.30am today after employees began complaining of a strong smell of gas.

They spent an hour at the scene before engineers from National Grid arrived to isolate the gas supply.
