Scaffolding falls into street

A scaffolding tower has collapsed near a busy shopping area in Bristol.

It happened in Princess Victoria Street in Clifton village just after 7 this morning.

It had been in place for a month and was due to stay for several more weeks when it crashed down, hitting the top of the houses opposite.

No one was hurt but the road was closed for a number of hours.
