One person has been killed and at least 20 more injured in two seperate bomb blasts in the Thai seaside resort town of Hua Hin, according to local media.

Local media reports have indicated that bombs were hidden in plant pots along the busy street that is flanked by popular local bars in the busy tourist location.

A local food vendor was killed after being in close proximity to the initial blast. The injured, which includes three who are in critical condition, have been rushed to hospital and are made up of both locals and foreign tourists.

The busy tourist town, about 200 kilometres south of Bangkok, was hit by the blasts just a day after another bombing took place in the southern province of Trang, killing one person and injuring six others, according to local media.

There is currently no information as to whether the bomb blasts were related.

A statement from the UK Foreign and Commonwealth office was released following the blasts, stating: “We are seeking further information following incidents in Hua Hin in Thailand. We stand ready to provide assistance to any British nationals involved.”

Authorities are still searching for those responsible for the attack.
