Parents still in hospital following suspected explosion at Mont Pinel

The parents who were injured during the incident at Mont Pinel last week are still in hospital.

That's according to Jersey Fire and Rescue who say the family, as well as those displaced, are continuing to be supported by the government. 

The incident happened on Wednesday 26 June, when emergency services were called after a loud bang was heard at around 11pm. 

A house at Mont Pinel partially-collapsed, leading to two young children being rescued, unharmed, by officers. 

The parents in the family home required further attention and were taken to hospital, after being found by emergency services 'under rubble'. 

We're told that at the weekend, 29 June - 30 June, residents forced to evacuate their homes were let back inside their properties to collect their belongings. 

They are also being supported by Jersey's government in conjunction with insurance companies.
