Scaffolding covering external stone being cleaned at a former bank in Norfolk has collapsed in high winds.

Renovations were being carried out to the former HSBC bank on Hall Quay in Great Yarmouth.

Easterly gales that reached force 9 according to the Met Office, caught the sheeting used to shelter pedestrians from the work.

The scaffolding fell on to a neighbouring empty bank building. No-one was hurt by the collapse.

Police have told people to keep away.
