August 2009 Archives

The Reverend Rat has been acting as a hyper-local "citizen journalist" photographer again.

Here are a couple of images of today's as yet unconfirmed (gas ?) explosion in Macbeth Street in Hammersmith.

Apparently there are bricks and other debris which were blown out at the back of this block of flats - numbers 172 -179, next door to the Hope & Anchor public house (a "gay pub").

The explosion blew out several windows at the front and even damaged some windows and brought down ceiling plaster etc. in the school building across the road.

Amazingly, nobody appears to have been hurt.

N.B. for those of you looking for another possible explanation, not connected with a suspected, but so far as yet unconfirmed, gas leak, this part of Macbeth Street was used in the past (1998) as an filming location for Dr. Who - Remembrance of the Daleks when the Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) and his companion Ace (Sophie Aldred) see the Dr Who Locations Guide - Macbeth Street
