CEMENT barely has time to dry before the wall comes tumbling down…again.

It's been knocked down more times than Frank Bruno and flattened more regularly than a pancake.

If it could talk it would call itself Ipswich's wailing wall.

For the third time in a year, the stretch of brickwork on the corner of Woodbridge Road and Argyle Street is down…again.

One wag who passed by the debris wondered if it wall was used as a training ground for apprentice bricklayers from nearby Suffolk College.

This time a car ploughed into it early last Saturday.

Gavin Montana, who lives next door to the wall said: "I couldn't believe it when it happened again.

"I daren't even walk past it when I walk my dog. I cross the road to avoid it."

The wall is demolished so often it is difficult to tell whether the pile of bricks in the car park behind the wall is left over from the last rebuild, or waiting for the next.

However on a more serious note Mr Montana said cars travelling both ways along Woodbridge Road misjudge the corner.

He added that about a year ago a woman pedestrian was injured in an accident on the bend and urged drivers to slow down when approaching it.

"Something should be done to slow traffic down on the road," he said

"There should be some traffic calming measures in place."
