Cumbria Crack

Workington road closed due to unsafe building

Allerdale’s Building Control officers were called out overnight (18th-19th December) after part of the roof of a building on Oxford Street, Workington became loose.

An Allerdale Borough Council spokesman said: “Both ends of Oxford Street and an area of Gray Street have been fenced off to ensure safety of members of the public and Oxford Street is closed to traffic in both directions.

“The building has been deemed a Dangerous Structure and contractors have been asked to carry out the work as soon as the wind has dropped and it is safe to do so.”
