Evesham suspected a gas explosion “shook the house”
Following a suspected gas explosion in Worcestershire, four people have been hurt, one critically.
A residence on Hemmingway in Evesham received an emergency call soon after 17:00 GMT on Tuesday.
According to West Mercia Police, a cordon has been established, and ten nearby residences have been evacuated as a precaution.
Nearby resident Sandra Cox recalled hearing an “almighty explosion” and feeling her entire house tremble.
We were enjoying ourselves while playing with the kids and relaxing in the living room when suddenly, she recalled, “there was an almighty bang.”
“We were all utterly afraid of [it]. It was terrible and shook the entire house.”
She called the surroundings of the incident “chaotic.”
You name it; there have been fire trucks, ambulances, and police vehicles.
The former nurse claimed that she had gone to the location after the explosion to talk with the police.
“If somebody was gravely hurt, I questioned. Because a person cannot be replaced but a house can, I am more concerned about the people than their homes “She stated.
According to the emergency service, there was “quite serious damage” to the home.
A man who had suffered critical injuries was evacuated from the scene to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.
Two other injured people, a male and a woman were transferred to a Hereford hospital.
After receiving treatment on-site, a second guy from a nearby damaged residence was also sent to the same hospital as a precaution.
A police cordon is still in place, and the route is still closed.
The general public has been requested to stay away.
