Nobody was injured when bricks crashed to the floor in Coronation Terrace at around 3pm, and residents showed community spirit as they banded together to clear the debris.

A neighbour who owns a trailer set the ball rolling, and around half a dozen people helped pile bricks into it.

Within 15 minutes there was little trace of the smashed wall.

Patrick Green, 21, lives in Coronation Terrace.

He said: “It just sounded like a bin falling over and everybody came out to see.

“Luckily nobody was walking past the wall at the time.
