Building masonry collapses and crushes car

Masonry appears to have collapsed and fallen from the side of a building in severe gusts from pictures taken by ITV News - not the entire building as was reported earlier.

A woman was tragically killed, while three others were injured. Around 10 people had to be evacuated from nearby buildings in Holborn, central London.
