A supermarket has apologised after a shop sign fell on top of a woman outside a store in Swansea.

The incident happened outside the Sainsbury's on Uplands Crescent on Tuesday.

Witness Noah Redfern said the sign was about eight metres long, adding: "It skimmed her head but I think she will be ok, she's had a lucky escape".

Sainsbury's said it had temporarily closed the store.

Swansea council said: "We are aware of the incident and will be looking into it further."
