Sinn Féin Councillor for North Belfast Gerry McCabe has said that the Ardoyne community is shocked by a suspected gas explosion in Farringdon Gardens, Ardoyne that has extensively damaged a at least one home.

Speaking earlier Cllr Gerry McCabe said:

“There has been what appears to be a gas explosion at Farringdon Gardens in Ardoyne.

“While it is early and we don’t know what was the exact source of the explosion

many families as a result have had to be moved from their homes in order to maximise safety.

“The Ardoyne community centre has been opened for anyone affected.

“I want to thank the quick response of the emergency services who are on the scene dealing with the incident.”
