Glass falls from roof at centre

The hole in the Westfield centre roof
Several stores were closed after the incident

An investigation is under way after glass fell from the roof of a Derby shopping centre.

A small piece of glass fell from the roof of the Westfield centre and landed on the floor on Saturday.

No-one was hurt but several stores had to be closed off for repairs to take place.

It has not yet been confirmed what caused the glass to fall but it is thought scaffolding may have struck the roof during strong winds on Saturday.

Centre manager Janine Bone said: "We are carrying out a full investigation into the incident and apologise for the disruption caused to our customers."

The centre, which opened in 2007, has 150 different stores.
