Bristol warehouse explosion - 'Multiple casualties' & others missing.

POLICE and fire crews have been called to a huge explosion at a Bristol warehouse today.

'Multiple' people have been injured in the blast - while others remain missing, the Avon Fire and Rescue Service says.

Emergency services were called to King Weston Lane in Avonmouth at 11.20am after the explosion 'rattled windows' of businesses half a mile away.

Witnesses say there are at least ten ambulances at the scene, as well as cops and firefighters.

The air ambulance has also landed nearby, while a second helicopter is reportedly searching overhead for people who have been hurt.

The fire service say there have been 'multiple casualties', but could not say how many people had been injured in the incident.

And officials told Bristol Live some people are still missing this afternoon.

Pictures from the scene - which is believed to be a waste management site - show the the badly-damaged and buckled roof of a storage tank.
