Two in hospital after gas explosion

Two people were taken to hospital after a gas explosion at a house, emergency services said today.

Fire crews were called to the end-of-terrace house in the Stockhill area of Nottingham at about 8.50pm last night.

Nottingham Fire and Rescue Service said a man and woman were rescued and taken by ambulance to the city's Queen's Medical Centre, but their condition is not known.

A spokesman said the rear of the house collapsed and the roof was "severely damaged" by the blast.

He added that structural engineers were expected to assess damage to the property.
