Bulldozers have finally moved into Mansfield’s ‘eyesore’ general hospital site which has sat derelict for more than two decades.

Nottingham-based CMEC Demolition began remedial work early in November and has spent the last few weeks removing asbestos to make the site safe so the demolition work can begin.

In October, Chad revealed that the project cost had spiralled to £940,000 following the discovery of the asbestos - £360,000 more than first anticipated.

Mike Robinson, head of regeneration at Mansfield District Council said: “This is a really significant step as this building has been an eyesore for such a long period of time.
