The area was made safe using film to form a visible barrier. There were no reported injuries at this incident.


  1. I’m sure the fire brigade would come round to my third floor flat if my window was broken 🤷🏻‍♂️

  2. It can only have been broken from inside the flat, unless it was a “Bird Strike”. That glass must have been struck very forcibly, so the leaseholder, or tenant must be responsible! They could try their insurance company, if they are insured!

    • There is cctv in the block, someone should be identifying the offenders. How did they get in if there is a secure entry system? Either it doesn’t work; someone let them in or it’s an inside job .
