Bricks have fallen from the front of a terraced house in St Helens, leading to the closure of one of the main roads into the town.

A large area of brickwork collapsed at the house in Dentons Green Lane just before 06:30 GMT.

No-one was hurt in the incident, but the road was closed in both directions between the Bishop Road junction and the Cowley Hill Lane junction.

Emergency services were called to the scene to make the area safe.

The road had reopened by 08:00 GMT.
