Demolition of a dangerous derelict building in Workington is ongoing.

The old social services building on new Oxford Street was deemed to be a dangerous structure on December 19, causing Oxford Street to close.

Contractors began work on the building later that day after the Dangerous Structure notice was served by Allerdale Building Control.

And work began to demolish the derelict structure on January 9.

When work is complete, the site is set to be a 54-space car park with 15 spaces for bicycles and three disabled bays.
