TWO people have died in the suspected ‘gas explosion’ in Ealing, West London.

The London Fire Brigade have reported that they have recovered the bodies of two people from the wreckage in King Street, Ealing, where an explosion at 6.40 this morning caused a building to collapse.

Earlier in the day, four adults and a child were rescued and 16 others evacuated following the suspected gas explosion in a phone shop, but fire crews at the scene said “we believe that there are fatalities within the property.”

Station Commander Paul Morgan said: “We can confirm that sadly two people have died at the scene.

“It has been a painstaking and protracted incident with firefighters working systematically to stabilise the building and search for people involved.
