A crane has toppled through the roof of a McDonald's restaurant while making a delivery in County Durham

Brett Cooper, a 41-year-old eyewitness from Consett, said:
"I'm not sure if it was lifting a freezer or an air con unit but it seems to have just gone over. 

Contractors have been working at the McDonald's so the drive-through has been closed but the restaurant was still open when it happened.

"There were people in there when the crane went through.

I think they will need another crane to get it out.''

It's not thought anyone was hurt.
