Dramatic footage has captured the moment a roof collapsed in the wind - missing shoppers by inches.

Remarkably no-one was seriously injured when the roof ripped off a shop, sending bricks crashing onto the pavement on Uxbridge Road in west London on Saturday.

A Hammersmith and Fulham Council spokesperson said:

Miraculously, no one was seriously hurt when the building in Uxbridge Road caved in on Saturday afternoon, as large pieces of masonry from the terraced home came crashing down between pedestrians.

There is no further immediate danger to the public, the Health and Safety Executive have been informed of the incident and the road and pavement have been re-opened.
