Drama as pipe falls from roof

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - UK & World Update -

A CHUNK of lead-pip­ing which fell off a build­ing in Cathe­dral Square forced a build­ing so­ci­ety to close its doors for two hours.

The drama be­gan at 11am yes­ter­day, when wor­ried staff at Chel­tenham and Glouces­ter, in Long Cause­way, called po­lice af­ter a cus­tomer told them a lump of pip­ing had fallen from the roof.

Po­lice cor­doned off the scene with tape and work­men were called to in­spect the roof with a cherry picker be­fore declar­ing it safe.

A spokes­woman for the com­pany said: “There were no in­juries and the branch opened again at 1pm. We apol­o­gise for any in­con­ve­nience caused.”
