I heard some loud bangs earlier and thought it was the wind. blowing stuff around. Just woken up now and could see flashing light through the blinds. Lifted them to find police and ambulance on the front - then went to look out bathroom windows - 3 fire engines parked up - all with their lights flashing.

Then I realised there was smoke billowing out of the back of one of the houses on Tulip Avenue!!!!

Can't figure out what's happened - maybe the bangs were related?

Will update if I find out (resisting walking out into street in pjs to ask a policeman raftl )

Unmarked police car has just turned up - now that's a bit odd for a house fire.

Road is closed off by police van now.

I'm signing off - this has been me reporting for the Junior Gazette!

As the sun rose over tulip avenue all that is left this morning is a single police car with its engine running. The upper front bedroom window is smashed with a ladder coming from it into the front garden and a blackened area around it. Hope everyone is well and safe this morning.

This looks horrific, hope no one was seriously injured. The bang noise could have been gas (or windows exploding).

That will explain the unmarked car and why they closed the road.

It's bad enough doing that to any elderly person, or just any person, but to do it to your own Grandma is just wrong!!

Lucifer, we have a tendency to get stories hours before the Echo and the Globe/Wirral News.
