Police probe Suffolk pub explosion that left three in hospital

Police are investigating an explosion in a pub garden in Suffolk which left three people in hospital with serious injuries.

The incident at the King's Head in Great Cornard near Sudbury happened just before 10pm on Saturday April 24th. 

Police say it's thought a small portable fuel heater may have exploded, causing a fire.

Emergency services attended including the fire service and ambulance service, and three people were taken to hospital for treatment.

The three people, two women and one man, remain in hospital after sustaining serious injuries, which are not believed to be life-threatening but are potentially life-changing.

Officers were at the scene on Sunday and cordoned off the pub garden while investigations were carried out.

The pub put a notice on its Facebook page saying it would be shut for the day and was working closely with the authorities.

The King's Head said its thoughts and prayers were with those who'd been injured.
