Rooftop scaffolding has collapsed in the high winds of Storm Doris, forcing emergency services to close a main road through central London.
The scaffolding became dislodged at the top of the office block at the 1926-built Aldwych House, Holborn, due to the high winds.
It had been put into place as part of plans for a £15 million rooftop extension.
The roadway running beneath was closed off on Thursday afternoon and was not expected to reopen until 5pm.
Motorists were warned of long delays in the area.
