Three people arrested over Leicester explosion

Three people arrested over Leicester explosion”

Three men were arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of manslaughter following an explosion in Leicester on Sunday that killed five people, the police said.

Leicestershire Police said the three men arrested yesterday are all in their 30s and investigators are now questioning them in connection with the fire.

Leicestershire Police are still investigating what may have caused the blast and fire which happened at around 7pm on Sunday (25 February) in Hinckley Road. Witnesses described the scene as a war zone as people dug through the rubble with their hands to recover those trapped, including a young boy heard crying from beneath the debris, which had spread across four lanes of the road. However, the police said they do not expect to find any survivors.

Claims by neigbours suggest the explosion and the building's subsequent "pancake collapse" was caused by the operation of an illegal alcohol still, Metro reports.

While Johnny P, wrote: 'My mate has friends who helped cordon the area off on Sunday night and apparently cops told them an alcohol factory was in the cellar.

Roz Rowett, of Leicester, said: 'I've heard someone was making vodka and it exploded? The chemistry is pretty unstable and when it goes bang, it really goes bang. RIP to all that have lost their lives'. We owe it to them to understand the cause of that explosion'.

But police have confirmed that Mary Ragoobeer, 46, and her sons Shane, 18, and Sean, 17 were among those killed.

Shane's girlfriend Leah Beth Reek, 18, and 22-year-old shop worker Viktorija Ijevleva are also unaccounted for.

Ljevleva was said to have been working in the Polish supermarket on the ground floor at the time of the explosion occurred.
