Street near station closed due to safety fears

A STREET near the railway station was closed this afternoon after reports were made to the police that an industrial building was unsafe.

Police officers, as well as fire crews and the aerial appliance were called to London Street, near Station Road shortly before 3pm following reports that a sheet of metal had come loose on top of a building.

Police had concerns that if it were to fall, it could cause serious danger to motorists and pedestrians so the road was closed and a cordon was put in place for a short period of time.

A spokesperson for Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "We were called to the industrial units off London Street at 2.55am following a report of a dangerous structure. An aluminium roof bar section had come off its original roofing and was resting on another building.

“We were called to make the scene safe by police officers.”
