    Breaking news on Sky. Let's hope it's a false alarm.

    Suspected gas explosion apparently.

    A Sunday night in Leicester would be a weird time for something terrorist related.

    This is a bit easier to see the scale in (assuming it is genuinely the incident).

    Apparently a convenience store with a flat above, probably gas related.

    Not too far from me, bit weird of the Sky News to class this as major incident, especially when a similar indecent last month got which killed someone and damaged an entire street got no mention.

    Bit weird. It looks like a gas explosion but they don't usually get this amount of coverage.

    Edit: what he said!

    It's the police who've declared it a major incident.

    Sky are probably disappointed it's not a terror incident.

    It was the Police , not Sky.
    Looks to me like a gas explosion, strange that Sky are making a big deal over it.
