There was an house Explosion in Batemoor S8 earlier this morning. One house completely destroyed and 2 others damaged.

The Batemoor explosion was at around 10.40am today, not the early hours.

 

And yes, it was definitely fireworks in Meersbrook Park, but they must've been huge fireworks. It almost felt like my house was going to explode, the bangs were so loud.

 

There were three very loud bangs, then a bit of a gap and then a series of smaller ones. Went on for around an hour, I think, but it was hard to judge as I was half asleep.

...thought it was illegal to set fireworks off after midnight - except New Years Eve/day ?

Well I thought explosion or something but then again Derby street area known for growing so thought crop ready somewhere also. I'm bottom of S14 and it sounded quite loud.

Chuff knows but I couldn't get back to sleep either x

 

I'm amazed there are still folk daft enough to believe that old wive's tale.

 

Why any drug dealer send when messages by fireworks in the early hours when he could use a mobile phone? They might be criminal, but they're not stupid.
