A team will visit Shambles tomorrow (Thursday) to see if and when it can be reopened.
As YorkMix reported earlier, York’s most famous street was closed off completely this morning, after the high winds from Storm Jocelyn sent roof tiles smashing onto its cobbles.
Parts of the street were later reopened, but the middle section remained closed all day.
This evening, City of York Council issued an update.
James Gilchrist, director of transport, environment and planning, said: “Our highways and public realm teams are responding to a number of storm related incidents across York from Storm Jocelyn.
“This includes damage to roofing on the Shambles where a number of tiles fell onto the road.
“We were advised that there was a risk of further tiles falling given the high winds, so the decision to close the road was taken to protect the public from immediate danger.
“The street remains cordoned off due to the high winds.
“Contractors will be visiting tomorrow to assess the situation so the road can be opened as soon as possible.”

Meanwhile Dean’s Park, behind York Minster was also closed due to the strong winds today.
