A devastating explosion has killed two people after a suspected gas blast in North Nottinghamshire.
Six people were injured, including a baby and a seven-year-old boy. The children have been released from hospital but one man is still in a serious condition.
Emergency services have been at the scene for the last 24 hours with demolition work still taking place tonight. David Hirst reports.
Police and senior fire officers say demolition work is still going on to allow the recovery of the body of a woman killed in the Newark explosion. They have praised locals who risked their lives to help those trapped in the rubble.
A man and a woman who died in a suspected gas blast have been named locally as Jeanette and Leslie Rourke.
The pair are thought to have died following the explosion at the terraced house on Sunday, which has left a second man, believed to be Nicholas Rourke, in hospital.
However a four-month old girl had a miraculous escape, after she was rescued from a neighbouring property, with a woman and a seven-year-old boy, Nottinghamshire Police said.
They were taken to the city's Queen's Medical Centre for treatment and have since been discharged.

A Nottinghamshire Police spokeswoman confirmed a woman and two men had been in the house where the suspected explosion took place.
She said a woman and two children, a seven-year-old and a four-month-old baby, were taken to hospital from the next door property and later discharged.
