Car damaged in scaffolding collapse

A section of scaffolding collapsed in Helensburgh this morning, damaging a resident’s car.

Police and firefighters were called to the incident on West King Street at 9am; an eyewitness said no-one was hurt.


  1. This was down to very stupid people with little respect for public safety and should be dismissed from there role as a scaffolder as it should be paramount that the public safety and wellbeing is number 1 priority.clearly these people did not think that.this will tar everyone with the same brush but this should not be the case as this was plain and simple neglect

  2. Was the HSE informed of this. 45 minutes earlier and my daughter and her friend would have been under that scaffold as they would have been waiting for their friend to leave that close
