Signs of alcohol-making at Boston fatal explosion site

Chemicals found at an industrial unit in Lincolnshire where an explosion and fire killed five men indicate alcohol was being made there, police have said.

Police, fire and ambulance crews were called to the Broadfield Lane Industrial Estate in Boston at about 1900 BST on Wednesday.

Police said an unidentified spirit was probably being produced illegally at the site.
