Businessman’s CCTV of horrific catering trailer explosion

A businessman has sent in footage of the moment a catering trailer exploded near his factory in Polegate following a gas leak.

Kev Delves, owner of KD Catering Butchers in Bay Tree Lane, said it was fortunate no-one was nearby when debris was sent flying.

He had arrived at work at 5.15am last Thursday (August 29) morning and half an hour later was disturbed by a massive explosion as debris from a nearby trailer which caused some of the windows of his business to blow out and also caused damage to a van.
