If you were near an empty house and could smell gas, would you call the gas board and report a leak or would you think it was none of your business and do nothing?

Our house in England has been empty for just over a week, but with cleaners, decorators and workmen going to and fro all that time getting it ready for us to move in. When we arrived, we immediately smelt gas and called out the gas board who found a big leak at the side of the house. All those other people must have been smelling the gas but doing nothing about it! The gasman said this is quite normal in his experience.... but I was shocked at this and wondered if anyone else thought like me that if you smell gas you should always report it, even if it's not your house.
Yes, I live near a recently demolished house and recently called up as I could smell gas.
If I lived near the house then I would tell my parents and let them deal with it. If I didn't live near it, then I wouldn't do anything.
UUmmm? Hell Yes!
