A digger driver has been treated by paramedics after he was potentially exposed to leaked gas.

The Fire Service was called to Galilee Ln, Clifton, about 10.40am today after a digger driver was affected by fumes. 

A spokesman said firefighters reported a "strange smell" on arrival, but were unable to find the source.

They left the area just under an hour later after determining the smell was no longer a concern.

A St John spokesman said the digger driver suffered minor injuries and was taken to Christchurch Hospital for observation.
