A West Midlands street was brought to a standstill yesterday after a lorry smashed into a scaffold while being erected on a pub leaving a scaffolder stranded on the top lift.

The heavy goods vehicle came in contact with the scaffold at around 11am outside The Castle pub in Willenhall, Walsall in the West Midlands.

Local media suggested the lorry was turning into a narrow side street towards the town centre, before striking the scaffold – forcing the independent scaffold to come away from the pub’s facade.

The road was taped off by local police officers while the scene was made safe.

No injuries were reported.
