Roof blown off block of flats

Storm Brendan has certainly left a mark on the country this week. In Slough, Berkshire, a large section of roof was blown off a block of flats and scaffolding from a 10-storey block in Orpington, London, collapsed on Tuesday night due to the high winds. Elsewhere, brick walls have collapsed, trees have blocked roads and rising rivers have led to flood warnings.

The RICS provide some interesting guidance documents on flooding and who is responsible for the cost of repairs due to fallen trees (see here)

A story from the BBC shows images of the havoc caused by the storm here.
