THE former Allders building in Croydon town centre was evacuated this afternoon following a suspected gas leak.

London Fire Brigade sent three engines and other specialist vehicles to what is now Croydon Village Outlet after being called to reports of a fire alarm at 1.38pm today (Thursday).

Around 100 people were led away from the building which was then cordoned off by the police.

Fire fighters wearing breathing apparatus investigated the basement of the building but found no elevated levels of gas, a spokesman said. 

They left the scene at 4.50pm and handed back control to the building manager. 

Croydon Village Outlet, which is in administration, is due to be relaunched tomorrow morning as Zervo after a takeover by businessman Clive Coombes.
