DEMOLITION work on the former Shields Gazette offices is set to be completed by the end of January, council chiefs have said.
Bulldozers have started pulling down our former office in Chapter Row, which dates back to 1910, as part of the council’s £100m 365 regeneration plan.
Town Hall bosses hope the site will eventually be replaced by a new retail and leisure development.
Internal stripping of the three-storey building has been ongoing for several weeks.
The new Gazette offices are at 7 Beach Road, South Shields.
