The road was due to re-open by 11am after clear-up work was carried out to deal with the damaged 20m strech of wall.

A Doncaster Council spokesman said this morning: “The wall on Hickleton Road that had partially fallen down is being repaired, and the road will be fully re-opened within the hour. There are no signs of any collision etc so we can only assume this was wind-related.”

No injuries are reported as a result of the incident.

Police were called out after the collapse at around 5.46am, with the road closed for several hours.
