Former worker on historical psychiatric hospital being demolished

The last remaining part of what was the largest complex of psychiatric hospitals in Britain, is being demolished.

Most of West Park Hospital, part of the "Epsom Cluster" of hospitals in Surrey, is being cleared to make room for new housing.

The central water tower and some buildings will be retained.

Here, former worker Bill Rashleigh recalls his time at the hospital.
