A man who blew up his house in a massive gas blast that killed his two-year-old next-door neighbour was jailed for ten years today.
The explosion obliterated the rented home of Andrew Partington and neighbouring terrace houses in Shaw, Oldham, last June.
Partington, 28, pleaded guilty at Manchester Crown Court in November to manslaughter and eight charges of destroying houses in the blast in Buckley Street on June 26.
