Police have now named the victims of Thursday's horrific explosion at the Chevron refinery.

Detective Chief Inspector Martin Davies, Senior Investigating Officer, said: “The bodies of the deceased were removed from the scene yesterday evening. We are now working with forensic experts to formally identify the bodies.

“Since the incident occurred our specially trained officers have been supporting the families and next of kin of those who tragically lost their lives.

“We can now confirm the victims were:

Julie Jones, aged 54, a mother of one and a grandmother of one, from Pembroke.

Dennis (Denny) Riley, aged 52, a father of two and a grandfather, from Milford Haven.

Robert Broome, aged 48, a father of seven from Milford Haven.

Andrew Jenkins, aged 33, a father of young twins from Milford Haven.

“A fifth casualty remains in a critical but stable condition in hospital. The family have asked police not to release the name or any other details at this stage, and the media are kindly asked to respect the privacy of all the families affected by this incident at this difficult time.”

Area Dean Revd Alan Chadwick, said: "The explosion at Chevron on Thursday evening has touched the lives of many in Hubberston, Hakin, Milford Haven and beyond, and has been devastating for some families. "Over the weekend Hubberston Church, St Mary's Hakin and St Katharine's Milford Haven will be open during the day for people to come and pray or light a candle, or just sit and be still."
