Cordial Hotel Gas Explosion

There has been a very serious gas explosion at the Cordial hotel this morning. There are people hurt.

At this moment we have helicopters parked all in the football ground on waste land and on the beach. The police have cordoned off the hotel.

It has been to do with a propane gas tanker vehicle, delivering the propane to a large tank at The Hotel. Something went wrong it blew up and started a fire.

Awful news. Bad at any time of course, but even worse when it is somewhere you know or as in your case Paul, somewhere you live. What with that, and the dolphin trips boat a few weeks ago...spooky.

This is terrible news. I am sure everyone will get all the support they need. It takes something horrible to happen to realise how caring and helpful people are.
