Leicester explosion: Three men arrested on suspicion of manslaughter after five killed

Three men, who were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter earlier this week, remain in custody.

The arrests are in connection with the investigation into a huge blast in Hinckley Road which demolished a supermarket and the two storey flat above, killing five people on Sunday night. The man, in his 30s, remains in custody along with two men from the East Midlands and the North West who were also arrested on suspicion of manslaughter.

"No further details will be released about these individuals at this stage", the department said in a statement.

"We acknowledge that the bad events of Sunday night in Hinckley Road have attracted significant public, political and media interest".

It asked people to "resist speculating about the identities of those arrested, the circumstances that may have led to their arrest and the cause of the explosion".

Police said they were investigating the cause of the blast, but do not believe it was terrorist related.

Claims by neigbours suggest the explosion and the building's subsequent "pancake collapse" was caused by the operation of an illegal alcohol still, Metro reports.

"According to my mate, vodka and gin was being made and that caused the explosion".

But police have confirmed that Mary Ragoobeer, 46, and her sons Shane, 18, and Sean, 17 were among those killed.

It is hoped the campaign will raise £2,000, which will be divided equally by all the victims identified by the police.

All are missing, along with 22-year-old Viktorija Ljevleva, who is thought to have been working in the supermarket at the time of the blast.
