Westminster pub demolished 'without permission'

A pub that was the last building standing in a west London street after the WW2 bombings has been demolished without official permission.

Westminster City Council and the pub's landlady were "shocked" when they heard contractors had razed the building in Maida Vale to the ground.

The council rejected plans in 2014 to pull down the Carlton Tavern in Carlton Vale.

Jean Mackenzie reports.
