Work finally got underway on Tuesday morning to demolish a derilect building which was once the headquarters of ICI in Billingham on Teesside.
It's not yet known what will be built in its place but many in Billingham regard the site as an eyesore and are just pleased to see it torn down.
Work has started on the demolition of the former ICI headquarters in Billingham on Teesside.
Stockton Council recently won a High Court battle to have Billingham House pulled down.
The demolition of the former ICI headquarters in BIllingham on Teesside will begin later today. The disused site has stood empty for more than a decade and has been at the centre of a legal wrangle between its owners and Stockton Council.
The council finally won its legal bid to have the building demolished after arguing that it was dangerous and an eyesore. Work to demolish it will be launched by a local resident who will sound an airhorn.
