Vehicles left dangling over sheer drop after part of multi-storey car park COLLAPSES

Cars were left dangling 50ft in the air after part of a major car park collapsed.

Terrifying pictures show two cars and a van overhanging the edge of a sheer drop left after part of an NCP car park collapsed, leaving them precariously balanced in mid-air.

Police were forced to cordon off the area surrounding the car park in Cumberland Place, Nottingham, after the incident, which happened at around 4am on Saturday.

Adrian Sudbury, 51, who runs the nearby The Dragon pub, said: “I use that car park all the time. I pulled in there this morning at about 9am, and had to check that my eyes weren’t playing tricks on me. It was bizarre.

“I just couldn’t believe that part of the wall was missing, you just wouldn’t expect that to happen anywhere, let alone such a well-used car park.”

He said structural work had been underway recently which may have contributed to the collapse.

No one was injured in the bizarre incident.

A spokesperson for NCP said: “An incident has occurred during the night at our Nottingham City car park, where a part of the front facia of the building has fallen and is blocking the entrance/exit of the car park.

“No one has been injured and no vehicle has been damaged.

“The fire service and police are working with NCP and the site remains closed until it is safe to re-open.

“We apologise profusely for any inconvenience this has caused to our customers parked with us, and to customers arriving to park with us today.

“We have staff on site who are communicating and helping any customers who have cars inside the building.

“We have structural engineers on site also and are working with the relevant parties to make sure that the car park will re-open only when it is safe to do so.”
