Residents were shocked to find the front of a Sidcup kebab shop mysteriously toppled over last night with one car "smashed to pieces".

The top section of the Kebab World takeaway and former Coffee World café in Blackfen Road was pictured completely destroyed with the rubble crashing down on a car which was parked underneath the facade.

One local resident, who did not wish to be named, said he heard a "massive bang" before heading outside to investigate .

"When I went out to look all the top part of Kebab World had fell off onto the ground and smashing one car to pieces. It’s very lucky that no one was killed.

"It should have been demolished years ago as there is planning permission in place for a small block of apartments

"The place is a bloody eyesore," he said.

The extent of the damage.

Plans to demolish both units to construct six two-bedroom flats along with a new restaurant were given the green light by the Council in 2017, however no demolition works have occurred since.

Both officers from The Met and London Fire Brigade were spotted on the scene following the incident, however a Met spokeswoman has said that it is not being treated as a police issue.

An LFB spokeswoman has said: "We did attend a single storey commercial premises, which included a kebab shop and two unused premises, on Blackfen Road in Sidcup.

"The first floor of the building had collapsed into the ground floor, no injuries were reported.

"We were called at 7:33pm on July 25 to a collapsed building and the incident was under control at 8:05pm.

"Fire crews from Eltham attended the scene."

A spokeswoman for Bexley Council said: "We attended the property last night. The parapet wall had fallen from the roof onto a car.

"The collapse looks as though it may have been due to long term deterioration.

"We discussed safety, the clean-up and necessary works with the property owners so that the Kebab shop could open today."

Attempts were made to contact Kebab World for more information.
