News: Man dies in Haxby after house explosion

A man in Haxby, near York, has died after a house exploded, suspected to have been caused by a gas leak.

The man, who has not yet been named by police, was inside the property when local residents heard “loud bangs” shortly after 7.30am this morning.

Images taken by me from the scene show the extent of the devastation. Around a dozen homes are thought to be affected. You can read my full article and watch the video report on YorkMix.
