Our priority at the moment is public safety and reassurance. We understand the sound of an explosion shook some nearby homes and alarmed local residents. I would like to praise them for remaining calm and alerting the emergency services promptly. There is no immediate danger to local residents and their homes, but we would advise people to avoid the petrol station because it is being treated as a crime scene so evidence can be preserved and recovered.

A sponsored sleep out by students at Barton Peveril Sixth Form College in Eastleigh has raised at least £1,000 for homeless charity Crisis.
Thirty students and four staff spent a night in sub-zero temperatures with only boxes, bags and blankets for shelter.
The event took place on campus and was organised by the Student Committee who will be collecting donations until mid-April.
Student Committee president, Harry Spicer, said: “No-one here can imagine doing this every day. We’re well aware that our experience was a very tame version of a harsh reality and that we were fuelled by the energy and adrenalin of it all.
“I think it’s given us all the ability to empathise more, but we still don’t really understand what it’s like to be homeless. These are real people and they need a little bit of love and compassion.”
Tonight temperatures will probably drop to minus three or four degrees again so while you're tucked up in bed in your warm house, spare a thought for those who live on the streets.
A group of students who want to raise awareness of the plight of those who sleep rough have decided to see exactly how hard it can be. They are with Simon Parkin in Andover tonight.
