TWO people were arrested in connection to drug offences after a gas explosion in Thurnscoe last Saturday.

Police were called at around 9.20pm following reports from the fire service of a possible gas explosion at a house on Cromwell Street.

A police spokesperson told the Chronicle: “A man in his 30s, who was inside the house at the time, was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

“No-one else was injured.

“The man and a woman in her 20s have been arrested for drugs offences in connection with the incident.

“Since then, the man has been released under investigation and woman has been bailed.

“There are no concerns for the wider community.”
