Complaints as 'gas smell' wafts over city

The Department of Environment Regulation is investigating reports of a strong gas smell wafting across Perth from early this morning.

Emergency services and ATCO Gas Australia received hundreds of calls about the smell overnight from people across the metropolitan area.

An ATCO Gas Australia spokeswoman confirmed the smell was not coming from the company’s gas network,

“The Department of Environment Regulation is now working to determine the source of the odour,” she said.

“We still encourage people, if they do smell gas or what they think is gas, to report it to our emergency line, which is 13 13 52.”

Anyone who is concerned about the smell should call the department’s pollution watch hotline on 1300 784 782.
