Got up this morning could smell gas as I was going down stairs  affraid  was getting stronger as I headed into the kitchen  affraid 

so shouted the mrs told her not to switch anything on
switched it off at main supply opened all the windows
rung the gas board

half hour later guy turns up condemned the main gas pipe under me stairs  Shocked very old pipe that gave up
he said it could of cracked as its set in concrete

so had me local plumber out to put a new feed from the meter outside and run the pipe outside of the house back to me kitchen

no signs of it leaking just started over night I guess
very lucky

Close call Lee glad your all okay  affraid  affraid  as Chad said a carbon monoxide detector is a must buy in any room with a gas appliance and can be had for a couple of pounds, ours also lights up and doubles as a smoke detector. Well done on keeping calm and knowing how to deal with it Lee!  thumbs thumbs

Got 2 carbon monoxide testers 1 upstairs 1 downstairs both smoke detectors aswell

But carbon monoxide testers dont detect gas leaks


carbon monoxide and natural gas are two different things. Carbon monoxide is produced when a hydrocarbon fuel is not combusted completely. Natural gas is about 96% methane with a small amount of ethane mixed in. It is a colorless and odorless gas

I should of been a gas engineer  Smile 

as ya say lucky all is well now  thumbs

Similar thing happened to me, got home from work about 8 and went upstairs. Could smell gas but only upstairs (girlfriend and daughter still in bed) she couldn't smell it. Went round to my neighbour (80 year old bloke) to see if he could smell it and as soon as he opened his kitchen door i could smell it. He hadn't turned one of the gas rings off properly from the previous evening, amazed me how he didn't wake up dead. Good job i got home when i did

Glad your all sorted now Lee
