A huge chunk of masonry fell from a building this morning.
Witnesses said the piece could have killed someone but thankfully no one was hurt.
The masonry fell from Mitre House in Western Road, Brighton at about 5am today.
A resident said: “I heard a massive sound and thought what on earth was that?
“When I looked out there was a massive bit of the building on the floor.
“Someone would have been killed had it been a Saturday night.
“It was quite shocking.
“All of sudden the fire engines were here with flashing blue lights.”
Fire crews closed the road off for several hours as they inspected the building and ensured it was safe.
