Lucky Couple Escapes Exploding Manhole in Peterborough

Two incidents of an exploding manhole cover have been caught by a nightclub security camera on Brook Street in Peterborough, England.

In the second incident, a young couple were lucky enough to escape without injury after the cover exploded just feet from them.

The explosion sent fireballs into the air and shook nearby buildings.

Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said the blast may have been caused by wires overheating. A spokesman for BT, which owns the manhole, said that an investigation will now take place to find the cause of both explosions.
