Shops effected by Storm Imogen

On the Monday the 8th of February the UK was struck by a large storm 'Imogen' with winds  of  70-80 mph and Bridgend was not spared as the old town felt its force, as tiles, slates, masonry and even capping stones came crashing to the ground exploding on impact sending early morning shoppers scurrying for safety.

The police closed off the town centre as more buildings became to dangerous for shoppers.

One capping or ridge stone left above this shop.

Cordons around buildings  effected by the storm Imogen the following day.

The ceiling in the shop was blown down by a sudden strong gust of wind.
