Police close of roads around the abandoned Polish ex servicemen’s club on Shewsbury Street in Old Trafford due to a partial roof collapse.

The incident occurred shortly before 7am this morning (14 January 2022) where fire fighters from many stations in Manchester attended, as a result of the collapse some residents nearby were evacuated.

Fire fighters fenced off the former polish club and began to assess the damage and to secure the building from further damage.

GMFRS and Trafford Council were working together to help residents to safety through the day as a temporary measure.

The former polish ex servicemen’s club was decided to have been bulldozed previously due to it being unsafe and so far nothing has happened and the building that looks like a church has deteriorated.

It seems the cordon around the area has been lifted although we believe fencing is still in place around the building.
