Demolition work starts at Cornwall Coliseum

Demolition work is starting at a Cornish music venue that hosted dozens of famous acts including The Kinks and Blondie.

The Cornwall Coliseum complex was built at Carlyon Bay, in the 1930s and was a focal point for generations of music fans and holidaymakers until it fell into disrepair in the 1990s.

After standing derelict for many years, approval for a £250m redevelopment project was granted in February.

The venue is being knocked down and will be replaced with a new residential and holiday resort.
