The old police station in Egremont will be replaced by a hostel for former military personnel who are homeless.

It'll be converted to an 11-bed home, after planners at Copeland Borough Council gave the plans the thumbs up at a meeting on 21 January.

All prospective tenants will be vetted, before being given a place at the hostel.
