Ten people have been injured, two seriously, following a huge explosion in a residential area of Clacton in Essex. Casualties include a man, believed to be in his 70s, who was airlifted to hospital with life-threatening injuries while a woman, thought to be in her 50s, was being treated for severe burns. A further eight victims, some suffering burns and broken limbs, were taken to hospital, according to Essex Fire and Rescue Service. It is thought the explosion may have been caused by a gas leak and gas safety officials are conducting an investigation at the scene. However the exact cause of the explosion is still to be determined. Search dogs have also been brought in to ensure that no one has been trapped or buried in the debris. Report by Mark Morris.
