Homes were evacuated in Charlton Marshall last night after a car crashed into road works causing a gas leak.

It happened around 11.15pm.

The driver was unhurt and managed to escape.

Dorset Fire and Rescue used a water jet to disperse the gas while the Red Cross Support Unit provided help to people who'd been asked to leave their homes.

The car was finally moved around 2.45 in the morning and the gas leak was fixed.
