The unused City-owned garages in Wilson Road, which have been attracting a lot of nefarious activities, are at last being demolished by the council.
This follows many months of complaints by residents in the area, especially after the property was vandalised, leaving the garage doors open for people to sleep, lurk or deal in. Residents also complained that criminals would hide out there after committing crimes in the area.
People without scruples have also been using the field in front of the garages as a dumping ground for their rubbish.
