Wirral Council have been told to do one by Central Government if they expect any government money to help clean up after the New Ferry explosion. The government will not provide funds to help people affected by the explosion on Merseyside either, officials have said. Two people were seriously hurt, 31 injured and many buildings destroyed in the blast in New Ferry, Wirral. The cost of recovering from an incident of this “size and impact” should be covered by “local resources”, the Minister for the Northern Powerhouse said in a letter to Wirral Council.
The peace and quiet of Jammy Toast was blasted to smithereens last night following what is believed to have been a gas explosion.

The second victim is described at in a “serious but stable” condition.
