A burst ‘elbow’ was the source of a loud noise heard at a construction site on the Tigné Seafront earlier this afternoon.
Reports first indicated another building collapse may have happened and were followed by other reports that construction equipment fell from a crane.
However, Fortna Investments later revealed that the incident was ‘was restricted to the bursting of an elbow connected to the cement crane distributor.’
Several police cars, ambulances and fire trucks rushed onto the scene.
