A stretch of Slough High Street will remain closed until tomorrow - a day after Tuesday night's gale sent lethal debris cascading from the roof of flats.

Teams have remained busy all day dismantling the lethal debris and businesses on the same area of High Street have been told to remain closed.

A Slough Borough Council spokesman said: "It would not be safe to have people walking in the area until the debris has been dismantled."

She teams of experts from the council and from Paradigm Housing which owns the flats had been working all day checking there was no structural damage to the flats, reassuring and supporting worried residents.

Ironically it is starting to look as if it was not the roof itself that collapsed. Ironically it may have been the weather proofing equipment of sheet metal and pipes on top of the roof, that was dislodged by the force of the winds.

The Health and Safety Executive has been informed but the investigation is expected to be carried out by the council.

One of the businesses temporarily closed is the Tani Sklep off-licence.

Dishad Abdulla, who runs it, had a narrow escape. He lives in a flat next to the shop and said: "I decided to have a shower which I never normally do at that time. If I had not done that I would have been walking to the shop while the debris was loose."
