Gigantic warehouse collapses in the port of Liverpool


Witnesses told ECHO that last night (Tuesday) a “grain storage unit gave way”.

Flashy pictures show how a huge warehouse in the port of Liverpool collapsed last night.

Witnesses say a “storage unit just gave way” as port officials confirm the collapse

“There were no injuries, and the materials contained in the warehouse are not dangerous and do not pose a risk.

A spokeswoman for Peel Ports said: “On Tuesday (1 December) at about 8pm the gable of a warehouse in the port of Liverpool collapsed.

Peel Ports, which owns the Seaforth Docks at the port, confirmed that no one was injured in the incident.

“An operation to repair the damage and determine the cause is now underway. All other work in the port continues as normal.

Sefton’s council was asked for comments, but had not responded by the time of publication.

ECHO assumes that the emergency services were not called to collapse and that there was no disruption of traffic.
