House roof wrecked in explosion

The roof of a bungalow in Cambridgeshire has been destroyed following an explosion and fire.

A couple were at home at Millstone Lane in Barnack, Peterborough, at about 0700 GMT when they heard a bang and found the roof was on fire.

The fire service said it was lucky the couple had managed to get out of the property.

Crews are checking for hot spots. The elderly man was treated at the scene for shock.
