Cigarette 'may have sparked vodka factory blast'

An inquest into the deaths of five men, who were killed in an explosion at an illegal vodka factory, has heard it was probably started by one of them lighting a cigarette.

The Lithuanian men died from the effects of smoke inhalation in the blast at an industrial estate in Boston, Lincolnshire, last July.

Ed Thomas reports.
