Death Of Man In Andover Explosion 'Not Suspicious'

Police say the death of a man in an explosion at a house in Andover isn't being treated as suspicious.

The end-of-terrace home in Launcelot Close was destroyed at around 2.30am on the 27 of December.

48 year old James Kirkby was found dead at the scene - a file is now being prepared for the coroner.

Authorities say the cause of the explosion was only linked to that property, and there are no wider safety concerns.

Hampshire Police have also thanked the local community for their patience and understanding during the investigation.
