RESIDENTS have been ‘moved to tears’ by the generosity of their peers following last week’s fatal gas explosion.

On Thursday, December 27, residents of Launcelot Close were awoken at around 2.30am by a blast that killed one man, destroyed one home and severely damaged another.

While investigations were carried out, a cordon was put in place and families were evacuated, including Roslyn and Robin Hughes.

Due to their involvement with King Arthurs Way Hall, the pair immediately opened up the space.
