Crews tackle fire after explosion

At least 50 firefighters are tackling a major blaze in Oxfordshire following initial reports of a gas explosion, police said.

Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue received a report of the explosion at Compact GTL Units 15 and 19 at Abingdon Business Park, Abingdon, shortly after 1300 GMT.

A 300-metre cordon has been set up and police said a number of roads have been closed, including Colwell Drive.

“We urge people to stay away,” a fire service spokesman said on Saturday.

Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue has ten fire engines at the scene of the incident.
