Man killed in car explosion named
Thursday 19 May 2011
Police named a man today who died in an explosion in his car.
A major incident operation was launched after the body of David Bagley, 58, from Navigation Point, Hartlepool, was found behind the wheel of his destroyed Nissan Micra in the early hours yesterday.
Three ambulance staff and two police officers who were on the scene were treated in hospital briefly after complaining of sore throats.
Fears that dangerous chemicals may have been stored in his apartment overlooking the town's marina led to more than 100 people being evacuated until late last night from nearby homes.
Army bomb disposal experts were only allowed into the property when it was deemed safe.
Detective Superintendent Gordon Lang said: "Police are not looking for anyone else in connection with this death and we are now working on behalf of the coroner."
