Lorry entangled in cable pulls down part of Calcot building
Gable end wall damaged in incident
A LORRY tangled in telephone wire cabling in Calcot this morning (Mon) has led to the damage of a building.
One pump was called from Dee Road Fire Station at 10.30am, followed by an aerial platform ladder, to Highview, off Royal Avenue, at Calcot Recreation Ground and to a building housing both Tilehurst Parish Council and changing rooms for users of neighbouring football pitches.
According to firefighters, a small section of the outside gable wall was pulled down, after a lorry drove off entangled in BT cables attached to the building.
No-one was hurt.
The incident left breeze blocks and the internal structure of the wall visible from outside the building.
The area was cordoned off.
Firefighters made the scene safe before leaving at 11.45am and prior to the arrival of a structural engineer.
