The emergency services have been forced to close Bridge Street and part of Bourges Boulevard after high winds have made a building unsafe.

They are asking the public to avoid the area due to debris being on the road from the damaged building.

Bourges Boulevard is closed between Queensgate roundabout and Rivergate roundabout.
