    AFAIK you must call the supplier, they'll send someone out to reset the meter.

    This happened to my daughter last week and someone was out within 4 hours.

    Her supplier is Scottish Hydro Electric, I don't know if all companies would be as efficient.

    so who would you phone if you had a gas leak?

    i know the standard of service you get from utility companies is pretty shoddy but they must have a 24 hour help line ffs

    I think gas leaks etc are all centralised mate.

    If you look at your gas meter, there should be a big yellow sticker with an emergency contact number on it, I think everyone has the same emergency number and all calls are routed to the same place.

    I might be wrong though.

    lol

    probably transco m8.
    still though any energy supplier should have some sort of 24/7 contact number.

    it's not like they don't make enough money the robbing cnuts lol
