Westland shopping centre in Anderlecht will remain closed until at least Friday, after a false ceiling collapsed on Saturday night.

The centre’s owner said no risks would be taken and work will be carried out to reopen the facility safely.

The closure comes in the middle of the January sales, and affects 140 stores. Westland is the biggest shopping centre in the western part of the Brussels region.

The owner said in a statement that “everything is being done to make sure the closure is for as short a time as possible”.
