London club Heaven was forced to be evacuated this morning when a gas leak was discovered.
The evacuation was only a precaution and no one was harmed during the incident, with a total of 1,500 people removed from the immediate area, which includes multiple businesses and hotels, however about 1,000 of those evacuated reportedly emerged from Heaven.
Officials discovered large volumes of natural gas in the surrounding area and later found that it was due to a burst gas main in the vicinity.
No one was injured in the evacuation, with the club’s DJ taking to twitter to commend the behaviour of the club’s security throughout the entire incident.
Yes we were evacuated just after 3am, but there was no panic, no “security being knocked aside”. In fact the calmest situation ever. Congrats Heaven security ??. Also thanks @LondonFire for letting me finish my set before evacuating too ? ??https://t.co/1lcufWyNyr
