A crane has revealed more of the inside of the property that exploded, raining debris down on the street.

Homes either side remain gated off and are still empty.

Police, fire investigators, the Health and Safety Executive and Sheffield Council are involved with the probe and police say a criminal element has not been ruled out.

The blast at 9am on Wednesday left four people in hospital.

One, the resident of the destroyed house, remains in Northern General Hospital with facial burns and cuts.

Two girls and a women were released from Rotherham Hospital after treatment for suspected smoke inhalation.
