    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A total of 30 people were injured in what is suspected to be a gas explosion in the Metropolitan Borough of Wirral, North West England, the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) said on Sunday.

    "Wirral incident update: 30 'walking wounded' patients (minor injuries) and 2 patients with serious injuries gone to hospital," NWAS wrote on Twitter.
