A reporter has written to say that when carrying out temporary needling and propping of openings formed in masonry walls one of the most important aspects is to ensure that the props are concentrically loaded and plumb.
Wind damage to secondary elements
A period of storm force winds, with wind speeds approaching design levels, resulted in damage to secondary roofing and cladding elements.
