Four people have been reportedly taken to hospital after an explosion in a storage locker at a supermarket in St. Petersburg, according to Russia Today.

The incident took place in the Perekrestok supermarket, which is located on the ground floor of the Gigant Hall leisure centre in the city's northwest Kalininsky district. Footage has shown multiple emergency services vehicles parked outside.

Russian news agencies have quoted St. Petersburg's branch of the Emergencies Ministry, saying that a device containing 200 grams of explosives went off today at the storage area for customers' bags. The Investigative Committee has now reportedly sent experts to look into the incident.

Initial reports said that two bombs had gone off, but it became clear that there was a single blast - possibly in the third carriage of the train. A second explosive devise was also found at the Ploshchad Vosstaniya metro station, but this was defused.
