Police have been forced to close a section of road on Dereham Market Place due to windy conditions causing scaffolding to become unsafe.

Norfolk police were called just before 9am due to concerns about the scaffolding above Poundland hanging loose.

Officers have closed a 30m stretch of the road to make the area safe for passersby.

The scaffolding company have been informed and will secure the loose scaffolding on their arrival in Dereham.
