UK: Hundreds evacuated after industrial zone blast east of London

At least 200 residents of Hoo Peninsula, in Kent county, east of London, were forced to leave their homes in the early hours of Friday as a fire broke out at the local industrial zone resulting in a massive explosion as seen in smartphone footage. The blast, followed by repeating bangs, woke up the citizens around 4:30 AM local time (3.30 GMT). The blaze can be seen taking hold at the industrial unit, with columns of smoke rising. Firefighters ordered residents of neighbouring towns to avoid the area and imposed several road closures as the emergency services are dealing with the fire.
