Residents evacuated after explosion in Bottisham

Have your say

Five people were treated for smoke inhalation and many others evacuated from their homes after a garage exploded in Beechwood Avenue, Bottisham, this morning.

Fire crews from Cambridge, Burwell and Newmarket and a water carrier dealt with the fire which wrecked at least three classic motorbikes and a Toyota MR2. They were being repaired by garage owner mobile mechanic Ian Baker, 61, who was not in the premises at the time of the explosion.
