Gales Damage Old Buildings 2006-12-30Posted by clype in Glasgow.
A number of people were moved out of their homes after part of a chimney stack on a tenement in ‘The West End’ of Glasgow collapsed.
No-one was hurt, though falling masonry damaged cars on Ruthven St.
The street was sealed off and council building control workers were working to make the area safe.
The incident comes two weeks after nine families in ‘The West End’ were evacuated after a tenement wall crumbled in Clarence Dr.
‘The Scottish Stone Liaison Group’ has said it is concerned that sandstone buildings throughout the country could be in danger of collapse due to a lack of maintenance and extreme weather conditions.
