Aftermath of the Wolsingham explosion
Early on Saturday 26 May 2007, the west end of Wolsingham town centre was devastated when an oxy-acetylene cylinder being carried in a Transit van exploded. Many windows were blown out and several buildings sustained structural damage. The driver was killed, but fortunately, being early on a Saturday morning, nobody else was about, and there were no other casualties.
