Garage roof collapses
Firefighters were called to a collapsed garage roof in Blackpool this afternoon.
The incident happened at a property on Walpole Avenue, South Shore, at around 1pm.
Fire crews from both St Annes and Chorley fire stations attended.
Crew manager Gerard Burke, of St Annes fire station, said: “The roof came in on a garage. The next door neighbour heard it.”
He said the concrete garage was empty at the time and that there was no-one in the semi-detached house.
“When we got there it was literally on the floor,” he added.
“We were there for over an hour just making it safe.”
