A Brownie leader has told how she narrowly escaped being hit by huge blocks of falling masonry when they fell from a building during the gale-force winds.

Trish Rose, 51, who works at Denby Pottery, was left badly shaken after the incident in Derby city centre in Thursday’s gale-force winds, which caused havoc across the country.

Trish, of Chapel Street, Kilburn and a winner of a Ripley & Heanor News New Year Honour in 2012 for her sterling work running a Brownies’ Group in the village, was walking through the East Street in the city centre when the blocks of masonry crashed into the middle of the shopping area right in front of her and startled shoppers at around 11am.

To read her full story, grab a copy of the Ripley and Heanor News out on Thursday.
