Merseyside dealership roof collapses in strong winds

The roof of a Merseyside garage collapsed after strong winds battered the region over the weekend.

Pictures at Linksview Garage, which sells used cars in Wallasey, show the extent of the damage.

Local resident Shane Baker said “at least three cars” had been damaged “quite badly”.

Mr Baker said: “It was a windy night and that’s continuing today.

“At least three cars are damaged quite badly.

“Most escaped serious damage because they’re small and the canopy hasn’t hit them.

“There’ll be minor damage to many though, including scratches.

“[The building is] taped off by the fire brigade but there’s a possibility it could fall and there are loose bits flapping in the wind. It’s right on a busy main road.”

The incident came as gale force winds hit the region on Sunday.
