  • From the section Devon

A section of a Devon town's high street has been cordoned off after a piece of wall fell off a derelict building.

Firefighters were called to the scene in Cullompton's High Street at about 20:40 GMT on Sunday after a "large section" of the wall, made of cob, fell on to the pavement.

Council surveyors were due to carry an assessment of the building later, Devon and Somerset Fire Service said.

Construction materials in cob buildings include mud, straw and earth.
