Security fencing erected after wall collapse 'miracle'

Security fencing erected after wall collapse 'miracle'
Security fencing will be erected after a 25-foot long wall collapsed in Norwich.

According to the Norwich Evening News, the wall outside the Hamlet Centre, a charity organisation, collapsed without reason at the weekend.

The paper said it was a "miracle" no-one was injured.

Speaking to the newspaper, Michael Rooney, chief executive of the Hamlet Centre, said: "Obviously the first thing is we're just grateful that no-one was hurt. That was the prime concern - that no-one was hurt.

Adding the centre was doing "everything we can" to improve conditions in the wake of the collapse, Mr Rooney said security fencing would be deployed as a temporary fencing solution until a long-term measure is found.

The fire service and police attended the scene, clearing away debris and making the area safe.

Mr Rooney also told the newspaper: "This is a bit of a blow. But the most important thing is no-one was hurt - walls are repairable."

Temporary security fencing can also be used on construction sites. Recently security fencing was erected around a row of buildings in Rushden that have been scheduled for demolition.ADNFCR-3337-ID-800096982-ADNFCR
