Updated Statement: Barn Park Gas Explosion

“Thank you to everyone who has helped support our customers today. Working together with the emergency services, Buckfastleigh Town Council and other partners has ensured customers have received the help they’ve needed on what we know has been a very difficult day for the community.

We wanted to let everyone know that all those affected have had support and, where needed, now have temporary accommodation.

We still have no update on the cause of the incident, but we will be co-operating fully with any investigations and working with the relevant organisations across the coming days and weeks on this. When we have confirmed facts, we will share that information.

Our continued thoughts go to our customer who remains in hospital, and her family and friends.”
