“We were called at 4:44pm today (12 February) to Roach Road, Hackney Wick, to reports that part of a building had collapsed.

“We declared a major incident and dispatched a number of resources to the scene. This included incident response officers, advanced paramedics, tactical advisors, clinical team managers, units from our hazardous area response team and several ambulances and fast response unit car crews. We also dispatched teams from London’s Air Ambulance.

“We worked closely with emergency services partners and treated 13 people. Three patients had potentially serious injuries and 10 had more minor injuries. We took four people to hospitals and major trauma centres.
