Explosion in Market Harborough

High drama in Market Harborough while I was at work in Leicester today. The Harborough Mail has the story:
An explosion at an electrical sub-station in Harborough sent a fireball 75ft into the air, eyewitnesses have reported.
The incident happened shortly before 10am this morning ... on the Riverside Industrial Estate next to distribution firm Weddell Swift.
The Mail also has a video from the scene.

And don't think the newspaper got off lightly itself:
The Mail offices in Northampton Road also suffered a three-second power cut at the time of the explosion.
