A 400-year-old pub in Flintshire has been reduced to rubble.

The Leader reported earlier this month how the demolition of the Boars Head Inn in Ewloe had started.

Plans had previously been approved for the pub to be knocked down to make way for apartments for over 55s.

The Leader revisited the site to see the structure had been completely destroyed.

The Leader:

The plans went before politicians for a second time this year after they were deferred in November because of concerns about the appearance of the development.

Joint applicants Anwyl Construction and Pennaf Housing chose to redesign the structure and the majority of councillors chose to vote in favour.

The site will largely be taken up by a new three-storey building, which will be prioritised for people with mobility issues.

In total 28 apartments and three affordable houses will be built on the site.
