Contractors experience 'serious structural failure' at former pub site

By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 16 Jun 2017

Contractors who were converting the former First and Last public house at Kirton-In-Lindsey into a Co-op convenience store experienced "a very significant and serious structural failure", it has been revealed.

The failure resulted in the need to review the method and form of construction as approved by the local authority in November 2015.

The Co-op store with an extension added has been trading since March this year.

But now the company has had to apply to North Lincolnshire Council for a minor material amendment to cover the work carried out.

The company bought the pub from former owners Enterprise Inns back in 2014.

Co-op area manager Paul Goodman said at the time: "We are delighted to have made further investment in the region, the Co-op is moving forward with a clear purpose and momentum and our ambition is to establish the store as a local hub, a real asset for the community.

"It is an exciting time for the whole team and we are looking forward to serving the local community."
