Emergency services said almost sixty people were taken to hospital mainly suffering from cuts and bruises.

Video footage posted on social media showed people fleeing the cafe after the explosion, with the street outside covered in debris.

Customers of the cafe were alerted to a blaze in the kitchen by a cook which gave many the chance to escape the premises before the gas cyclinder exploded.
