They've turned off the gas for 2/3 of the people in my town. In 2001 the population was 184,390, so that's a lot of people without gas! Our heating is gas and so is our oven which leaves me with just a barbecue to cook on (too cold outside) or a microwave. So, what can I cook? Just in case we can't get anything from one of the hundreds of local takeaways because they've either ran out of food or use gas themselves. We could be without it for a couple of days. It's to do with a gas leak they're trying to find or something.
