High winds cause demolition delay
The team demolishing the tallest building in Stoke-on-Trent have said the weather has made it too dangerous to do some of the work.

Unity House in Hanley should have started to come down three weeks ago, but winds have caused delays.

The project manager, Bill Unwin, said workers must follow safety guidelines.

The city council has proposed a business district for the site. Unity House was built in 1973 but has been empty for 12 years.
