A brick wall around the Parliament Hill Lido came crashing down in high winds at about 10pm on Friday night.

The outdoor swimming pool did not open over the weekend and it remains closed until further notice as engineers work to make the site safe.

No-one was injured in the incident.

The City of London Corporation, which runs the lido, took to Twitter to apologise for any inconvenience.
