The blast happened at a mini-supermarket in Hinckley Road at around 7pm on Sunday night. "With three people now charged and due in court, it becomes even more important, for legal reasons, that this message is heeded", the statement said.

The three were remanded in custody and will appear by video link at Leicester Crown Court for their pre-trial review.

Two other men, both from East Anglia and who were arrested on Friday, remain in custody and are continuing to be questioned by detectives.

On Saturday, police charged Arkan Ali, 37, Hawkar Hassan, 32, and Aram Kurd, 33, with manslaughter and arson with intent to endanger life.
