It’s gridlock around Churchill Square car park, after emergency services closed off Cannon Place in Brighton.
Scaffolding fell from a building, landing on a car, and unconfirmed reports from a witness said it was a near miss for a family who were walking along Cannon Place when the structure fell this afternoon (December 23).
A road closure is now in place while police and fire crews clear the scene, causing gridlock for Christmas shoppers using the Churchill Square car park.
Sussex Police said: “Police are currently helping with a road closure in Cannon Place, Brighton after some scaffolding fell onto a car.
“There are no reported injuries. The road is closed for recovery work of debris.”
East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service said a crew from Preston Circus attended Cannon Place to a ‘dangerous structure’.
