Alexandra Tower- A 100kg Pane Of Glass Falls Out
It is the green sore thumb in the centre of the picture that from a distance looks like its a chimney out of the Liver Buildings.
The Fire station manager, said: “It weighed 100 kilos and it is made of special toughened glass. There was a loud bang and when it hit the floor the debris sprayed up to 30 metres away. It went everywhere.” It is thought the glass may have shattered because of freezing overnight temperatures and yesterday’s sunny conditions.
A search and rescue team abseiled down the building to examine the damage. Roads were closed off.
A special crane was brought in last night to allow workers to remove the rest of the broken glass and repair the damage.

I am so suprised that this has happened, I thought it would last at least 10 years before pieces started falling off.
