Wall collapse in Moss Side affects road users

The side wall of a shop in Moss Side has collapsed, leaving bricks falling from the building onto the pavement and parked cars.

Earlier this afternoon just after 1pm, TNT News was alerted by a passer-by who fortunately missed the incident on the corner of Lloyd Street South and Wykeham Street.

There are currently no reported casualties from the collapse of the wall however a car that was parked next to the building has been left damaged.

Bricks fell atop and to the side of the car, with some crashing onto the pavement and part of the road on Lloyd Street South from the wall.

It is unclear whether the building, which houses a takeaway, has any more structural issues that may cause further collapse, however residents are advised to avoid walking near it.

Understandably the traffic flow has been affected by the incident as the bricks and rubble can be removed from the road and pavement for public safety.

To avoid any delays in your travelling, please plan your journey ahead.

More updates will follow in due course.
