Police are no nearer discovering what caused a gas explosion at a house in Bicester on Monday night.

Andrew Rushton, a 36-year-old father-of-five, was seriously injured in the blast and is still being treated for severe facial burns in the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, where his condition is said to be "stable".

Mr Rushton's wife, Sue, 34, and their ten-year-old son, Andrew, were also injured in the blast at the family home in Manzel Road but later released after treatment.
