A "major incident" has been declared by British police after reports of an "explosion" in Leicester. At around 7.03pm Leicestershire Fire and Rescue received calls from the public who said they had heard a blast on Hinckley Road. A spokeswoman for the force said six fire engines had been requested and that the incident is currently being treated as a search and rescue operation.

Must not be much fun for you thinking that way especially with no reason to make you think that way.

First thought that came to my mind was "like it has happened since Mankind learned what fire is something exploded"

That does indeed look like a major incident, holy smokes. Hope they contain it fast.

How long after the initial explosion was that picture taken? Do you know?

Hopefully not too soon, because not many are going to get out if it was that bad within moments...

Damn, that's bad.

Yeah, really have to verify nowadays with all the lies and propaganda on twitter and social media in general. RT is all over this story.

Terrorist attacks tend to go for bigger targets.
I would assume gas until we learn otherwise.

The knee jerk reaction is not a human fault I believe. So many terrible things happening these days. The mind will generally hop to a criminal/terrorist conclusion because the severity that terrorism imprints on ones brain....

I'm thinkung 'gas blast' right now either caused from above flat or the shop below has a gas cooker or gas supply unless something else went off accidently before main target.

That's what you are programmed to think.
Wake up or the terrorists win.

Probably a gas pipe.

Most councils don't have the money for proper maintenance these days.
