Evacuation after Gateshead Job Centre gable collapses

A Tyneside Job Centre has been evacuated after part of the outside of the structure collapsed.

Emergency services were called to the building on Felling High Street after the gable fell onto the street just after 1100 GMT.

It is thought that high winds could be to blame. There have not been any reports of injuries.

The surrounding area has been cordoned off and structural engineers are at the scene assessing the damage.
