Nardini's Cafe in Largs has had to be evacuated over concerns over a possible 'gas leak' on Sunday lunchtime.

The News understands Scotia Gas Networks have arrived and are carrying out maintenance and checks at the famous Art Deco cafe after reports of a possible gas leak, and a smell of gas.

The cafe has had to temporarily close as a precaution - and is expected to be closed for the rest of the day before re-opening tomorrow. 
The ice cream takeaway area has been deemed safe to stay open.

Nardini's have been contacted for comment.
