Irlam Gas Explosion

Recommended Posts

Some dreadful pictures coming from Salford and the area of Irlam this morning.

Currently nobody killed (lord knows how luckily).

I know Mr Data lives in the area- just hope he and his friends are all ok.

I'm ok thanks Phil.

I didn't hear the explosion although I was up. My grandparents use to live very near where the explosion occurred and some of my friends and work colleagues live in the area. They said their houses and windows rocked. Its absolute gridlock in the area.

Hopefully, there is no one left trapped in the rubble.

Will be incredible if nobody loses their life after that. It looks like a bomb has gone off.

yes looking at a photograph of the area it really is a miracle that no one appears to have been killed, one person with 40% burns which is awful enough.

Who was doing the work in the kitchen at the centre of the blast I wonder?

We had an explosion just like that in Shrewsbury back in January- amazing nobody was killed considering where it took place. Those pics from Salford look horrible; hope everyone's not too badly hurt.
