It was reported in Holland. There were several reports from France as well.

Most reports from Hertfordshire.

It is definately this bang. A small storage tank exploded at 06h04, with the larger tank going off a minute later, with two smaller explosions a short while after.

Totally destroyed the nearby wharehouse and offices.

Substancial blast dammage to other offices in the industrial estate ( including Dixons head office Who designed their disaster backup and recovery plan. Lets see how well it worked.)

It has to be this blast Mr Fuller heard.

Others who were on the lash last night were prolly still in a drunken stupour...


( due to the cold weather the noise would have travelled further than usual.. )
