Wait before demolition of gas blast homes

Any demolition of properties damaged in a gas explosion in Cheltenham on Thursday will not begin until at least until the middle of the week.

One resident said his house would be demolished but a council spokesman said it was not possible yet to say how many others would need to be pulled down.

A view from the rear of the home shows the extent of the damage with radiators, a bath and chairs strewn across the back garden.
