A road was shut as crews worked to secure a loose roof panel.

Firefighters attended St James Park Retail Park, Dover, at 4.01pm as reports came in of a metal panel hanging off a unit.

As the panel dangled from above the M&S Foodhall, cars were stopped from using the neighbouring Townwall Street.

Crews were seen using ladders to access the roof of the building.

The incident comes after a period of high winds, which have battered Kent – particularly the coast – since yesterday morning.
