Gas Leak???

I have a combi boiler that is located in a solid she outside my flat.

The gas meter is located in the basement and is connected to the boiler with appropriate pipes.

The pipes go through the house, through a closet (which backs the boiler shed), through the wall and then out to the shed where it conencts with the boiler.

Over the past few days i have noticed a distinct smell of gas when i open the closet door (that the pipes pass through).

It is not very strong but it is clearly present.

When the door of the closet is closed, there is no smell in the advjoining room.

Is this dangerous? What should i do?
