[www.inewsguyana.com] – Several motorists, pedestrians and police officers moments ago were sent scampering for cover as several zinc sheets from the Brickdam Police were sent flying onto the street and Police Station Compound on Monday afternoon (March 31).
The zinc sheets were ripped off from the racks of the police A Division Headquarters which also houses the Brickdam Police Station in Georgetown.
As the zincs flew off, some hit the ground while others dangled on utility wires and others hovered on the roof in an unbalanced position.
While on the scene, iNews (www.inewsguyana.com) observed motorists dodging the falling zinc sheets while pedestrians hurried for cover.
Several male police ranks who were in the building at the time rushed out seeking refuge elsewhere as the high winds rattled the zinc.
When approached by iNews (www.inewsguyana.com) and told of the situation, a senior police officer moved to have the street closed off to vehicular traffic and pedestrians until the zinc sheets which clearly pose a threat to life and limb, removed.
