People evacuated from homes after building collapses

  • Video report by ITV News Anglia's Sarah Cooper

People had to be evacuated from their homes after a building collapsed in Wellingborough on Sunday night.

Police, ambulance and fire crews were called to Arthur Street after the building came down without warning.

The property had recently been sold was being redeveloped into housing.

Unfortunately a couple of the residents had to move out last night due to the dangerous situation, we've seen them this morning. Obviously they're a little bit distressed and a little bit concerned about their own property but the most important thing here is that nobody was hurt, nobody was injured during the event.
