  • Rosslyn Avenue Sunderland

One half of a semi-detached house was completely destroyed, the other half badly damaged.

Ms Shepherd's sister Tracy Tia Judson said she was able to talk in the ambulance, having miraculously survived the major blast which sent roof tiles flying and shot the back door more than 20 metres down the back garden and over a fence.

Officers have also attempted to re-assure the public by saying "There is nothing to indicate at this time that this incident is linked to terrorism".

The victim, whose daughter was not at home, was "conscious and talking" as she was taken to hospital, according to the Facebook user.

Emergency services were called to an address in Rosslyn Avenue in Ryhope at about 08:50 BST.
