More than 50 people have been forced to evacuate an area in Carlton North after a dangerous gas leak.

The leak came from excavation works on Station Street, with an 100m exclusion zone in all directions in place. Police and firefighters are on the scene as they work with the gas company to fix the issue.

Road closures are in place between Curtain Street and Fenwick Street.
