A man who died after a house was reduced to rubble in an overnight explosion has been named as 48-year-old James Kirkby.
His body was found in the debris of the former home in Andover, Hampshire after the 2.30am blast on Thursday.
Evacuated neighbours were still waiting to return to their homes a day later, as investigations continue into the blast on King Arthurs Way.
Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service had sent search and rescue teams to search the scene on Thursday.
A number of neighbouring properties were then evacuated as a precaution.
A joint investigation by the fire service and Hampshire Constabulary was launched.
Dan Brown, a spokesman for gas distribution company SGN, said: "Following reports of an explosion in Launcelot Close, Andover, our engineers joined the emergency services on site in the early hours of the morning.
"We understand an occupant in the property at the time of the explosion has died and our thoughts are with them and their family.
"While it is too early to speculate as to what has happened, we're working closely with the emergency services to help identify the cause. In conjunction with the authorities, we're currently working to isolate gas supplies to property numbers one and two for safety.
"We'll remain on site to support the emergency services to help discover the cause of the explosion."
