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.
