Pedestrian In Collision With A BMW On The Avenue On Friday Night
Four Injured In Explosion At Holiday Park
Four people have been injured when a gas cylinder exploded on a holiday park near Weymouth.
Dorset Fire and Rescue Service says firefighters from Weymouth and a senior officer trained in hazard materials and environmental protection were called to the park near Chickerell at 6.36pm on Tuesday 21st May.
The fire was out on arrival, but four people were treated for facial and upper body burns. Firefighters used special burns gel dressings to treat them.
The 250g butane cylinder and a camping stove were destroyed by the fire and an awning was melted by the heat.
The cause is unknown at this time.
Watch Manager Nigel Randall said:
"Although it's not necessarily thought to have been the cause, we would warn people to treat gas and camping equipment correctly in order to stay safe.”
Officers say many of those were after people didn't secure their car properly.
James Hemming pleaded guilty to wounding with intent after a 17-year-old girl was badly injured in Fratton.
Dorset and Hampshire officers will be carrying out extra patrols until New Year's Day.
