Properties evacuated on Shetland over 'gas leak'

A man has been taken to hospital after a suspected gas leak on Shetland.

A cordon was established around a property in Mossbank, and properties within the cordon were evacuated.

Northern Constabulary said it was believed there may have been a gas leak.

A spokesperson later said the area was made safe, and the cordon removed. A man discovered inside was taken to hospital for assessment. A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.
