ENGINEERS were last night continuing to investigate a gas explosion which hospitalised a man and a woman on Boxing Day.

Several homes were evacuated on Thursday after the building in Highholm Street, Port Glasgow, was deemed unsafe due to the damage. Details of the conditions of the two people who were injured have not been released but their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Emergency services are investigating the incident.

A Scottish Gas Networks spokeswoman said last night: “Engineers were called to a property following reports of an explosion.

“We assisted the emergency services with their investigations. We have now left the site. Until these investigations have been completed, it is too early to speculate as to what has happened.”
