Firefighters are working to secure a storm-hit building in the centre of Penzance this afternoon.

Gusts of up to 80mph caused tiles and debris to become loose on the roof of the two storey property, which posed a threat to shoppers on busy Market Place.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue said crews investigated on a ladder and are making the scene safe.

Devon and Cornwall Police have cordoned off the area.
