A long run of scaffolding collapsed outside shops in Francis Road, Leyton, London on Monday as a storm battered the UK

The length of the collapse was around 100 yards which caused damage to parked cars and blocked the road for hours will NOT be investigated by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

The HSE have confirmed to a local newspaper that because there were no injuries they would not take any action.

A spokeswoman also said the decision had been made after the HSE  made contact with Waltham Forest Council’s building control department.

The collapse happened just before 7am.

Shopkeepers and residents say the area is busy and it was lucky no one was injured.

The scaffolding was being used by council contractors to refurbish shop fronts.

Do you think this was the right decision to make by the HSE ? Let us know in the comments below. 



  1. One guys got a t shirt, hoody and a bomber jacket on like its winter. The other guys r in t shirts. 2 of them have trainers on. The best thing is one of them is wearing his harness inside out. The D-ring is on the inside.
    In my opinion u only get what u pay for and if ur sending out a bunch of bungalow heads with nothin upstairs (who can’t even get dressed properly) then its no wonder jobs fall an people get hurt

  2. Any one with half a brain can investigate from the pictures.its a simple equation;monoflex + no ties + no safety checks on Fri/sat=dodgy firm and brainless fixers-simples.that’s why they put sails on yachts -so they move when the wind blows.have they ever heard of debris net uptown?come to think of it,have you ever seen a yacht with debris net for sails?lmao

  3. Some companies hav a company policy that as soon as you get out the van harness on I was on one site a few year ago basein out round a house and was given a written warning for not wearin my harness
