A TheJournal.ie reader sent us the above video from the scene back in March.

He described it as a “huge explosion”.

“I could see a massive fireball go up in the air over the old Meath Hospital,” he said.

I thought the hospital had a gas leak and so went to see what had happened. It turned out to be a car that I had just walked past.
