A GAS EXPLOSION.
A gas explosion took place at Bury at night in the guard’s van of a first-class passenger
train travelling from Manchester to Burnley. The explosion set fire to the van, and the
guard was seriously burnt. Some mail bags were partly destroyed, and the letters more or
less injured. The postmaster of Bury took charge of the damaged letters, and the guard,
after having his wounds dressed, was sent home to Accrington.
