A woman was killed on a busy London street today after being crushed by falling masonry. The victim, thought to be in her 20s, was hit by a concrete window frame in Hanover Square in Mayfair.
A witness, who called emergency services said:
It took around ten people to lift the concrete frame off the victim.
According to its website, the building houses a fine art gallery on the ground floor. Three workers nearby said barricades had been in place around the building but were removed a few months ago.
One witness who wanted to remain anonymous spoke to ITV London.
A forensics tent was sent up in a cordoned off area by police.
The Health and Safety Executive also took photographs at the scene.
