Wrexham's former Scott's nightclub is to be demolished and the site turned into more than 100 student flats.

Councillors approved the plans to build two four-storey student blocks as well as ground-floor retail space on the site at Brook Street.

A report to Wrexham planning committee said work would be monitored due to levels of asbestos in the old building.

The report said the changes would lead to access improvements with drop-off areas and 50 car parking spaces.

The site includes other buildings off Lea Road.
