Clacton explosion: Family unable to 'return for months'

A family affected by a gas explosion in Essex fear they will be in rented accommodation for months.

It is three months since the blast tore through a house in Clacton, damaging dozens of homes and leaving two people badly injured.

Sharon Partridge and her family lived just two doors down from the scene but her house was badly damaged in the explosion on 5 February.

Kevin Burch reports.
