A road leading to the A10 in Royston was closed yesterday evening, after a wall collapsed.
The wall in Sun Hill came down near to where traffic joins the A10 London Road, after a day of heavy rain. Bricks spilled onto the road and a police cordon remained in place this morning.
A force spokesman said: "We were called at around 4.11pm yesterday - the wall collapsed 5-10mins before the call.
"The site has been handed over to Highways who will be clearing the site as soon as possible, no date was given."
UPDATE: A Herts County Council spokesman has now told the Crow: "I can confirm that the bricks have not been collected and the road remains closed for safety reasons, as there is a risk that more of the wall could fall down or if the remaining bricks were removed the material it was retaining could then fall across the road.
"It is also believed to be a private wall for the garden of the property called The Mount.

The police have also now confirmed there were no injuries reported.
