Further checks by ABN revealed that the explosion was caused by an old abandoned petrol tank which had been buried and long forgotten. The church gardener, after his routine clean up was said to have burnt the refuse directly where the tank was buried, triggering the explosion which affected roofs of houses around the cathedral.
