Damaged roof leads to temporarily closure of a busy road in Southport

WHEN roof problems occur on a cram day, you don't often expect it will end with a road being closed off to the public. Sadly for commuters, on Tuesday, 22 November 2016, Nevill Street, in Southport's Town Centre was closed to traffic and pedestrians after a roof was badly damaged, prompting fears it could be a danger to the public. We are told the emergency services got a call from a member of the public at around 1:15pm. Merseyside Police then blocked off the busy road so that and Fire crews from Southport could safety start to cut away around 6m to 7m of roofing material. A spokesman for Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service said:- "Fire crews have attended a premises on Nevill Street, known as the Will Grove pub, due to a large piece of roofing felt that was hanging from the top of the building. No one was injured and the crew safely removed the danger." We are told that following the incident repair work on the building is now underway.  It is unclear as to what happened to result in the roof being so badly damaged.
