A furniture shop which has traded on Teesside for 40 years must now be pulled down after it was destroyed by fire last night.
Godwins in Stockton town centre caught fire at teatime yesterday.
It took over 40 firefighters six hours to tackle the blaze.
The decision to demolish the historic shop has lead to fears from nearby traders that their businesses could suffer while the demolition is carried out, because it means a main route in the town must remain closed.
