A woman has been found dead amid the rubble of a house where a man died in a suspected gas explosion, the BBC reported.
The second body was found by rescuers on Monday morning at the house in Newark, Nottinghamshire.
Police said continuing searches in the rubble had revealed the body of a woman, which would be recovered later.
A man’s body was removed from the house in Wright Street in the early hours. Four people, including two children, were treated in hospital.
Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue service said a woman and the two children were from the neighbouring property. They have since been discharged.
The fourth person – a man – was in the house where the explosion happened and is being treated for serious injuries and the effects of smoke inhalation.
A Nottinghamshire Police spokesperson said a “controlled demolition” would be carried out later as the property was not considered safe.
About 100 people living near the site had to leave their homes overnight.
Many spent the night at the nearby Grove Leisure Centre.
