TWO families have presented themselves to the council for housing assistance following the collapse of their building in Norbury. Fourteen people were evacuated safely from 1505 London Road after its roof caved in on Saturday afternoon, injuring two passers-by. The building is uninhabitable in its current state. A council spokesman said this morning those who had presented themselves had been helped. Alex Scavo, 27, said his brother and colleague live in the second floor of the three-floor building and were sleeping there at the time. "They heard a noise and saw from the window the pieces coming down, so they got scared and went out and ran away," he said. Falling bricks injured a man and a woman walking past the building. The man was injured in the head and taken to St George's Hospital as a priority. The woman was injured in the foot and was taken to Croydon University Hospital. Police said their injuries were not life-threatening.
