Plans to regenerate St Austell were first discussed in 1999
Preparation work is being carried out to demolish an old supermarket in a Cornish town.

It is the next stage of the 40m regeneration of St Austell, which will include shops, restaurants, a cinema and 60 new homes.

A compulsory purchase order was made by the South West Regional Development Agency, after wranglings between Tesco and the local council delayed the work.

The old multi-story car park and fire station have already been bulldozed.

Demolition of the supermarket will begin in the middle of September.

St Austell has also secured joint funding for a civic pride project to help make local people feel better about their town.

Plans to regenerate St Austell were first discussed in 1999.
