  3. County Hall demolition continues

    Flintshire County Council has defended its decision to go ahead with work to demolish empty parts of its headquarters during the coronavirus pandemic.

    Some people have queried whether the demolition work at County Hall in Mold was classed as essential, according to the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

    However, chief executive Colin Everett said it was being carried out in accordance with government guidelines.

    It follows the relocation of hundreds of frontline staff to refurbished offices five miles away in Ewloe.
