A woman thought her housemate was making her beans on toast just before an explosion ripped through her flat, a court has heard.

James Toogood, 36, is accused of causing the explosion on Whitchurch Road in Bristol while trying to make cannabis oil.

Laura Hawkins said she was not aware of anyone making cannabis oil in her flat.

Mr Toogood denies a charge of damaging property being reckless as to whether life was endangered.

Miss Hawkins, of Currells Lane in Felton, Bristol, denies allowing her flat to be used for the production of a Class B drug.

Bristol Crown Court heard the explosion happened just after 20:00 GMT on 23 February last year, destroying two flats and causing £260,000 of damage.
