An injunction stopping council officials from demolishing a Denbighshire community centre has been lifted by a judge.

Now, campaigners fighting to save Corwen Pavilion from the bulldozers have 21 days to appeal the decision.

Denbighshire County Council was released from the injunction by a judge at Wrexham County Court on Monday.

Corwen Pavilion closed in March 2010 because of health and safety issues prompting a local campaign to save it.

Repairs were estimated at £1.3m and Denbighshire council planned to demolish it and pass the land to a community group to build a new venue.

Campaigners say the building has played an important part in Welsh culture throughout the 20th Century and should be saved.

They say they have yet to decide whether to appeal.
