Gas explosion in Shrewsbury

The BBC reports:

Some people have been injured after a building collapsed in an explosion in Shrewsbury town centre.

The incident happened on the corner of Smithfield Road next to Welsh Bridge at about 1140 GMT. A West Mercia Police spokesman said a few people were hurt.

You can find an eyewitness account and photographs at Suntrap Holidays.

Later. Excellent coverage in the Shropshire Star.

Indeed, alas the last night of the panto has been a victim of it, which is a bit rubbish. But probably not as rubbish as being blown out of one's flat, I suppose.
