People in at least six homes received the letter, which said that following the assessment from the structural engineer the wall was found to be “an imminently dangerous structure… in danger of collapse”.
The council said it has now instructed a specialist contractor to put supports in place to help prevent any further movement, and will carry out further assessments of the integrity of the wall.
