A crane has fallen over at a prominent construction site in central Norwich.

The accident happened at the Westlegate Tower site on Westlegate at about noon on Monday.

It is believed a crane toppled over, damaging the town house section of the site.

No-one was injured in the accident, and it is not known if the Health and Safety Executive has been informed.

In February, a Norwich shop owner said machinery being used in the renovation of Westlegate Tower knocked rendering from the side of her children's clothing shop, Coccolino, in Timberhill.
