Leicester Explosion - Police Ask To Stop Speculation But Claim ‘Finding Cause’ Will Take Days

The UK police have asked the public to stop speculating on the cause of the massive explosion that ripped a whole house apart in the city of Leicester. This is due to online chatter stating that the place was a possible ‘bomb factory’ for terrorists. Given that the UK was been hit by several terrorist attacks last year, the authorities do understand the public’s concern.

(In defense of the online gossip crowd, we must point out that two days before the attacks in Barcelona in August last year, the ISIS terrorist cell present there also saw their ‘bomb factory’ in a neighboring town go up in flames and then decided to do a surprise attack before police would discover what they were up to. So far this one has the look and feel of a gas explosion, but we must ask understanding from both sides).

Superintendent Mr Shane O'Neill: “We know the explosion and subsequent fire will have caused considerable concern to residents and business owners in the area and we would like to thank people for their support and patience while teams continue with their work at the scene.”

“There are now five confirmed fatalities and a number of people still undergoing treatment in hospital. The building consisted of a shop premises on the ground level and a two-storey flat above it. We believe there may be people who have not yet been accounted for and rescue efforts continue in order to locate any further casualties.”

“It may be some days yet before we will be able to establish the probable cause of the explosion.”

Now let's not jump to conclusions, there's no proof whatsoever this wasn't the IRA.
