    Two men have been seriously injured after an explosion at a house in Barnstaple, north Devon. Neighbours saw the men running out of the house in flames after the blast went off.

    They have now been airlifted to a hospital in Wales.

    Initially, the two men were taken to North Devon Hospital, but are now at Morriston Hospital in Swansea.

    One person posted on Facebook that a huge explosion went off at just after 4 o'clock this morning.

    The explosion was so fierce a window had landed in someone's garden.

    A cordon has been put around the area of devastation.
