Fire crews were called to a Corby home in the early hours of the morning (Saturday, January 26) after it partially collapsed under the weight of the snow.

The steel and plastic side carport of the house, a bungalow in Surrey Close, collapsed, pulling away some of the external wall of the property and exposing the internal brickwork.

Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue said crews from Corby and Mereway attended the incident, after being called out at just after 1.30am.

The house has since been made safe.
