Police are still trying to find the cause of a gas explosion at a house in Banbury which seriously injured a father- of-five.

Andrew Rushton, 36, was still too ill to be interviewed in the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, today after suffering severe facial burns in the blast at the family home in Manzel Road on Monday night.

His wife Sue, 34, and their ten-year-old son Andrew both suffered burns but were released yesterday after treatment.
