Prudhoe North councillor Angie Scott says she’s pleased the road beside the Prudhoe Drill Hall has finally been closed to keep Prudhoe residents safe.

The building, which was most recently used a gym, was due to be knocked down and replaced with housing.

The owner was found guilty of fraud and is now serving a prison sentence.

In the meantime the building has become less safe, posing a risk to local people

Councillor Scott said: “I have been in contact with Northumberland County Council officers on a regular basis on this derelict building since I was elected to serve on the council.

“A recent survey of the building has deemed it to be unsafe and unfortunately the road is now closed, but I understand this is to keep people safe because of the state of the building.

“I look forward to this problem being resolved in the interests of local people and I will continue to be in discussions with council officers until this is sorted out.”
