Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Part of the ceiling of the Duke’s snack bar in Msida collapsed just before mid-day.

The ceiling collapse was discovered by the man currently operating Duke’s Jason Carabott. Carabott narrowly escaped the incident without injury.

Speaking to TVM, Carabott said, ‘If the ceiling gave way during the week, people would have died!’

The construction of a new block of apartments is currently taking place on the floor above the Duke’s.

According to the police, Triq Bordin which the snack bar is located on, is currently closed.

Officials from the Forensic Unit and a number of police officers are at the scene.

Duke’s owner Charles Duca told TVM that he had complained to the builders banging items on the floor above. The architects had assured them that there wouldn’t be any damage.
