Anyone who felt the need to remain in the area while this incident took place I hope you feel it was worth it. I can only imagine what cancer causing materials you inhaled waiting to get that perfect picture....good luck with that

I will believe the building will be knocked down only when it actually happens. It all sounds like another Garforth scheme to me!!!
