AT least five people have been injured in the blast
A huge explosion has destroyed one home and left another in ruins in Manchester this afternoon.
Police and fire crews are at the scene in Cecil Road, Blackley, Greater Manchester, following the blast.
A spokeswoman for North West Ambulance Service said two people had been taken to Salford Royal Hospital with what were believed to be serious injuries.
Three other people were being treated at the scene for minor injuries.
A neighbour told the Manchester Evening News: ‘The house shook. We thought someone had crashed a car into our house, so we went out to see and it was that bang.’
