COUNCIL contractor Colas will pay to have a 1920s seafront shelter repaired after one of their vans crashed into it.
The accident happened yesterday at around 10am when the vehicle hit the roof of the former tram shelter, on Clarence Esplanade, Southsea, while doing maintenance work.
No one was injured but the scene was cordoned off for most of the day while the area was made safe.
The shelter’s roof has now been removed and a Colas spokeswoman confirmed the firm will pay to have it repaired.
She added it is not known how much this will cost or how long it will take.
