<p>Louby Lane, 60, was sat in her living room when a massive explosion tore through the neighbouring terraced house in Kingstanding, Birmingham last Sunday (26/6).<br></p><p>The force of the blast, which killed grandma Doreen Rees-Bibb, 79, blew out Louby's downstairs windows and forced her and her grandchildren to flee the property. </p><p>Louby's home of 38 years has now been left on the brink of collapse and is earmarked for demolition after being declared structurally dangerous. </p><p>The gran-of-two has only been allowed back to grab a few essentials meaning the majority of her possessions remain inside the abandoned property. </p><p>She says as a result she has "lost everything" and has been forced to officially register as homeless as the council has yet to find her a suitable replacement. </p><p>Louby, who lives with her grandkids Megan and Morgan Rowe, aged 11 and 13, says the nearest alternative accommodation she has been offered is 90 miles away - in Luton. </p><p>Her daughter Terri Rowe has now set up an online fundraiser to help raise money to replace her possessions which face being lost when the home is bulldozed.</p><p>Louby said: "The explosion itself was insane. I just came out the kitchen and sat on the settee and I heard a funny noise.</p><p>“I don’t know how to describe it, it was weird. There was this big gush that came rushing through and then a huge bang which shook the house.</p><p>"The windows were blown off and then I could hear people screaming, the grandkids were upstairs shouting me. </p><p>“Everybody started running into the house next door. There were so many people in the street, it felt like thousands. </p><p>"A neighbour called Sam from up the street came down and took me and the kids to her house. It was just crazy and so tragic." </p><p>Filmed on 3rd July 2022</p>
