Hemel Hempstead: Buncefield Oil Storage Depot
View taken looking eastwards from Boundary Way, eleven weeks after the explosion on 11 December 2005. One small storage tank is standing but to the right of it are the remains of one of the burnt out larger tanks. The Northgate Information Solutions building, which was devastated by the explosion, was on the site on the left side of the view and has been demolished. Beyond the four concrete bollards the remains of a line of burnt out cars are still in place. For a summary of the event and its consequences the Wikipedia link is here LinkExternal link
