Explosion at Hare Krishna temple

Help

A Hare Krishna temple in Leicester has been partly destroyed in an explosion.

A third of the terraced property on Thoresby Street has been destroyed and is too unstable for crews to enter.

A local councillor told BBC Radio Leicester that the president of the temple had confirmed that "all those who were inside have been accounted for" and were "safe and well".

Jonathan Cecil from BBC East Midlands said the roof of the building had been destroyed.
