Haxby House – Gas Blast - 19th February 2016

IFIC is sadden to see the loss of life in the Haxby house blast.  Whilst this blast is thought to involve a gas supply, it has yet to be confirmed.  Investigations of this nature are complex and will require a team approach involving police, HSE, forensics, fire service investigators and service suppliers.  It may be that insurers consider appointing their own forensics to ascertain any liabilities.   The purpose of this investigation will be first to recover and identify any deceased, whilst simultaneously gathering evidence to ascertain if the explosion is the result of human actions or fault or defect with workmanship or appliance manufacture.
