A gas explosion which has left a man in a “critical” condition in hospital and a woman injured is being treated as attempted murder by police.
Officers were called to Kennedar Drive in Glasgow following the incident at about 7.05am on Friday.
The occupants of the flat, a 26-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman, were hurt in the blast.
The man was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary suffering from burn injuries and is said to be in a “critical” condition.
Twenty-three people were evacuated from the building following the incident.
The woman was taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital with minor injuries but has since been discharged.
Superintendent Craig Smith of the Greater Glasgow Police Division said: “Inquiries carried out so far have revealed that the explosion was as a result of a deliberate act within the flat.
“The flat has been significantly damaged, however, the impact of the blast did not affect other properties in the block and the 23 people who had been evacuated have been allowed back into their homes.
“Kennedar Drive remains closed to vehicular traffic until further notice.”
