Putting screw into external brick wall

Posted 31st Mar 2013
One of the clip holding the drain pipe at the front of my house has become loose so I need to screw it back in.

I normally drill a hole in the brick, insert a raw plug and then screw into the raw plug.

Is there a simpler way to do this? Can I just screw the screw straight into the brick without the raw plug? Perhaps I may need a special screw if I don't use a raw plug?
