Viral video footage shows the moment the gable of a house collapsed onto a street - while a passer-by casually strolls past.

According to the BBC, the building that partially collapsed is located in Hyde Mews in Christchurch, Dorset.

The outlet reports that a car was 'badly damaged' in the incident.

However, the anonymous man was thankfully not injured as he passed - simply stepping slightly to the side to avoid the falling rubble.

Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service confirmed that one fire engine was called to the address to deal with 'an unsafe structure'.

It also said there were no injuries in the incident.

A spokesperson said: "We have one fire engine in attendance at an address in Hyde Mews dealing with an unsafe structure.

"The gable end of a property has fallen onto a vehicle and is unsafe.

"The road has been closed until the crew have made the property and area safe.

"No casualties have been reported and we are currently working with a structural engineer who is assisting us."

The video clip, which was filmed via a doorbell camera on 21 May, shows a man walking along a residential street in windy conditions - a tree in the foreground blowing around wildly.

As he comes closer to the house, the gable of the building suddenly begins to fall, sending bricks and other debris crashing to the ground.

Completely unfazed, he slows down slightly and steps to the left to avoid the rubble, before walking off to continue his journey.

The car that was parked in the street underneath the house, however, didn't manage to dodge the destruction - having been partially buried under a pile of bricks.

The footage was shared on meme page The Archbishop of Canterbury Instagram page, where a caption read: "I aspire to give as little f***s as this guy does."

Commenting on the post, many people pointed out there wasn't exactly much else the man could have done other than walk past.

One said: "Not much he can do about it like."

Someone else agreed: "Hardly about to rebuild it is he."

Someone else gave a shout-out to the resilience of the small tree in the foreground, which managed to withstand the windy weather.

"That little tree put that brick work to shame," they said.
