The unveiling of a new Drakes Supermarket has been marred by a gas leak.

Just before 6pm on Monday 15 April 2019, police and emergency services were called to the Murray Bridge Green Shopping Centre after a Co2 leak was detected from a refrigeration unit within the newly opened supermarket.

Up to 100 people were evacuated from the complex and the car park had to be cleared and closed off as a precaution.

CFS and MFS units helped to expel the gas with fans, bringing the issue under control by 7.45pm.

There have been no reported injuries.
