A woman was injured after a tile fell off a roof and hit her on the head.

Shoppers walking past Iceland in King Street, Twickenham, said the woman was sitting on the pavement with blood coming from her head after the tile fell from the three-storey building.

Builder Martin Gould said: “This poor woman was sitting there with two ambulances and blood coming out of her head.”

Mr Gould asked Iceland to cordon off the area to prevent any more accidents from happening but said no action had been taken yet.

He said: “If another tile comes off that roof and hits a child on the head it’s going to kill them.

“There are so many tiles missing. There is a tile barrier but it looks really old.”

Richmond Council said that the highways and building control team was aware of the accident and would assess the building and work with Iceland to make sure the area was safe.

A London Ambulance Service spokeswoman said they were called to the scene at 10.30am to reports of a woman, in her mid 30s, was injured by a tile that fell from the roof.

The spokeswoman said: "Two ambulances and a single responder in a car were sent to the scene. Staff treated one patient and she was taken to West Middlesex Hospital."

The woman's injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
