Fire crews called to Walter, Scott and Ross


Firefighters have been at defunct solicitors Walter, Scott and Ross this afternoon removing loose tiles.

Concerned residents informaed the council who called the crew from Kingsway as winds picked up.

It is thought that thieves have stolen lead flashing from the roof of the boarded up building leaving the tiles overhanging and dangerously loose.

Residents who watched the firefighters at work told the Advertiser they are ‘fed up’ with the building and want to see action taken.
