The fire service said there were no reports of any casualties. Veysel Komurcu, one of the residents in the flats above, was trapped for twenty minutes and was rescued through window. He said: “There was a big noise, I opened the door and the balcony had gone. I was scared the whole house was going to go.”

 

“We are working to ascertain whether there will be further collapse, but at this moment in time we do not believe that will be the situation
