Demolition starts on Wesley Street Mill in Bamber Bridge

A 100-year-old former Lancashire mill is being demolished in spite of a campaign by local people to save it.

The Wesley Street Mill in Bamber Bridge is to be knocked down to make way for a new housing development.

South Ribble Borough Council said the building was in too bad a state to repair.

Councillor Cliff Hughes said the council hoped to preserve some of the features so they could be reused in the redevelopment.
