World War Two re-enactors suffered leg injuries when an explosives demonstration went wrong.

The two men were taken to hospital but their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening, as Essex Live reported.

The incident is being investigated by English Heritage.

Jamie Osborne, general manager of Audley End House, said: "With all of our events, but especially an event of this nature, we have strict safety controls in place but clearly something went wrong and we are investigating what happened."
