A pane of glass has fallen from a second-floor balcony of a flat, crashing onto a gym coach’s car in South Wimbledon.

The glass fell from an apartment block named Spur House on Morden Road this morning.

It is currently unknown whether the hot weather caused the glass to fall, with temperatures hitting 39 degrees today.

A gym named F45 Training South Wimbledon, which is located on the bottom floor of the building had to cancel classes due to the incident.

A coach at the gym had his car badly damaged by the glass, which smashed the rear windscreen and left dents on the vehicle.

London Fire Brigade put a cordon in place while the area was made safe from around 9am and 10.20am today.

There have been no reports of any injuries.

A spokesperson for F45 Training South Wimbledon, said: “Our morning had started like most and we were about to start running our 8am class this morning when there was a loud crashing noise.

“I happened to be looking out our windows when I saw a large amount of glass come plunging down from the flats above.

“Luckily no one was beneath or in the immediate vicinity and one of our coach's cars was parked in the way, essentially protecting anyone from taking a direct hit.

“The car was quite badly damaged with the rear windscreen smashing and the rear of the car sustaining some small dents and scratches.

“It's hard to know whether or not this was a direct result of the increased heat or not but the police and fire brigade were quick to cordon off the area to protect the public.

The gym had to cancel their classes throughout the day to "ensure the safety of their members".

F45 Training South Wimbledon have said that someone will be coming to check on all the balconies above to ensure they are safe and do not pose any further risk to the public.

The gym will resume classes as normal tomorrow but ask its members to enter via the studio to ensure their safety.

The team at F45 have said that many members are attending for the aircon during the hot weather and has even seen an increase of new membership enquiries because of the heatwave.

The gym's staff look forward to seeing their clients tomorrow so that they can get out of the heat.

A spokesperson for London Fire Brigade said: “Firefighters were called to a window and glass in a precarious position on Milner Road in South Wimbledon this morning.

“A pane of glass had fallen from a second-floor balcony.

“Crews cordoned off the area and made the scene safe.

“There were no reports of any injuries.

“The Brigade was called at 0858 and the incident was over for firefighters by 1023.

“One fire engine from Wimbledon Fire Station was at the scene.”

Warwick Estates who manage the building along with Malone O'Regan who are the consulting engineers on the development have been approached for comment.
