Really quite a soporific article. It’s stunning how little you can say about important things when you are skilled at ‘critical ommisions’ like the BBC
*** UPDATE ***
Video from BBC. Still not one word about whodunit. We do know one thing though. Had even one of the suspects darkened the door of a church one time, the accused would all become ‘fundamentalist Christians’
Two men and four women have been arrested after a kebab shop in Leicester was destroyed in a blast.
Emergency services were called to reports of an explosion at a shop in Narborough Road about 02:20 BST and found the building demolished.
The cause of the explosion was being investigated but was being treated as suspicious, police said.
Fire crews said it was “incredibly lucky” passers-by had not been caught by flying debris.
A police spokesman confirmed a criminal investigation was under way.
The fire service said a search and rescue dog was used to check for casualties but it is not believed anyone was in the shop.
Station manager Dave Watson said: “It is incredibly lucky that we have not had more injuries and more damage caused.
“The force of the explosion has blown objects for some distance and we have been very lucky that passers-by did not get caught by debris.”
Several adjoining properties were evacuated as a safety precaution. Parts of Narborough Road have been closed while investigations are carried out.
Leicestershire Constabulary have appealed for anyone with information about the incident to contact them.
