Police received calls and asked for the fire service’s assistance after an explosion, which a resident told the WHT “sounded like a massive car crash” was reported to them at 9.35pm.
The Panshanger resident said: “It was a massive boom. In my street we all went out of our homes, expecting to see a car crash.
“It was mysterious; we even had a friend who heard it in Thistle Grove.”
