Cordon set up in alert as car crashes into gas main
FIREFIGHTERS put up a 200 metre safety cordon in Yelverton after a car collided with a gas main at the weekend.
Firefighters from Yelverton, Crownhill and Tavistock were called to Dousland Road at shortly after 3.30am on Saturday after reports of a traffic collision involving one vehicle.
