Window pane breaks in window of pier glass in Brampton

A pane of tempered glass broke in the window of a Brampton pier on Friday morning, forcing the window pane to be removed.

The glass pane broke about 5:30 a.m. near the south entrance to the Brampton Pier on St. Andrew Avenue.

The pane, which is made from glass from the Pier Glass Building, was broken at the south end of the pier, said Const.

Gary MacDonald with the Peel Regional Police.

It was a small window pane, and that’s what broke.

The glass was about three inches thick, said MacDonald.

It’s a very small pane, but I think the glass will come off.

The pier is closed.

It’s not really a concern.

There are no major injuries, MacDonald said.

The area is closed while the pane is removed.

There is no word yet on the status of the pane.

The pier is not a busy area and there have been no reports of traffic disruptions.

The incident was first reported by CBC Toronto.
