Lancaster Road, close to its junction with Church Street, saw fire crews cordon off the building above Yum Yum takeaway.

Firefighters used an aerial ladder platform to get up to the second floor of the building.

The incident, on Saturday (21 October) from 10.30am, was triggered by a call from the member of public who saw a pane of glass looking unsafe in the strong winds caused by Storm Brian.
