- 10 October 2013
- From the section Norfolk
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.
