There is a 50ft drop below and vehicles have their two rear wheels off the edge. Debris plummeted from the multi-storey building. Fortunately, no one was injured. Officers were called to the NCP car park after incident. “Part of the front of the building has fallen and is blocking the entrance/exit of the car park,” a spokesman said. The fire service and the police decided the site to be temporarily closed but later, according to reports, people have been allowed into the facility to collect their cars. All the vehicles “on or near the edge” have been made safe.

Structural engineers have rushed to the scene to assess the damage. Road closures are in place in Mount Street, from the junction with Cumberland Place to Maid Marian Way; in Cumberland Place; and Park Row, to the junction with Cumberland Place. Drivers were urged to avoid the Mount Street area in the city center. A spokesman for Nottingham City Council said as it is a privately-owned car park the council was not involved in the investigation.
