Cumbrian council services back in business after car crash

A full range of council services will resume from Wigton Market Hall next week after a freak crash damaged the front entrance.

A car crashed through the front doors causing damage to the building on Saturday lunchtime.

Sandra Keaveney, manager of the North Allerdale Development Trust, said: “The front entrance will remain closed for a few weeks.

“However, we should have an office up and running by Monday where people will be able to make payments.

“Allerdale Council is hoping it will be a full range of services, which we have relocated to a smaller office with an entrance at the side of the building, but it will most likely be room for one person in and one person out.”

The building has been checked and found to be structurally safe.

Miss Keaveney added: “Most people have been quite understanding once we have explained what has happened. The Allerdale staff are doing their best.”

The damage included cracking in the pillars, and the reception desk – which was bolted to the floor – had been shunted 4ft.
