Miraculously, eighty one year old Betty Hodgkiss wasn't seriously injured when her home was wrecked last May. Eleven other properties in Rosehill Street were also severely damaged. Our Gloucestershire correspondent Ken Goodwin has this exclusive report.
We have been unable to find any definitive cause for the explosion. The nature of the explosion made it difficult to carry out a full forensic exploration of the site and we have been unable to find any evidence of recent work, or a fault in any gas appliance.
The catastrophic seriousness of the explosion itself made it very difficult to piece together physical evidence of how it is most likely to have been caused.
With regards to the way evidence was removed and stored: the investigators did the very best they could in the circumstances of the evidence lying in the wreckage of the explosion.
The evidence was obtained as early as possible, was handled, stored and transported in the best practicable manner and has been scrutinised fairly and thoroughly.
