Preston pub and Chinese restaurant demolished after building was deemed unsafe - These were the scenes

A notorious Preston restaurant – which was once a pub – has been demolished after the building was deemed unsafe.

The site of the one-time China House and before that, Lime Kiln pub, in Aqueduct Street, has been empty since 2014 after being described as a ‘death trap’ by a health and safety inspector.

It is being knocked down to make way for a new development. Our photographer Neil Cross was on hand with contractor Pete Marquis as the bulldozers moved in.
