Part of a terrace house has collapsed after strong winds.
The gable of an end-of-row house in Baxter Close, Fakenham, came crashing down shortly before 7.50am this morning (Thursday, January 18), spreading debris across a neighbouring property.
The fire service and police were called to the scene and the area was cordoned off. A police spokesman said: 'It certainly coincided with the strong winds. We were called at 7.53am this morning to assist (the) fire service.'
Meanwhile, the wind ripped out a huge fir tree at a camp site/wedding venue near Dereham, knocking over part of a brick wall, bringing down cables and plunging the site into darkness.
Sarah Hughes-Wade, who runs the Fire Pit Camp with sister Rachel Hughes-Green, said she was shocked at seeing the damage.
