The tile was hanging from the Nationwide building in the Bull Ring, Ludlow, so the area was taped off while fire crews safely removed it before it fell.

A Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said: "At 1.05pm we received a call reporting an incident in Ludlow.

"One roof ridge tile hanging from building over street. Crews cordoned off the road.

"Three fire appliances including the aerial ladder platform were mobilised from Craven Arms, Ludlow and Shrewsbury. An operations officer was in attendance.

"Also at the scene of the incident were the police."
