The demolition of the Greyfriars bus station site has been delayed by up to six months after “more asbestos than anticipated’ was found in the building, the leader of Northampton Borough Council said.

The borough council announced in March that it was hoping to complete the demolition of the former bus station by the end of 2014.

However, Councillor David Mackintosh has said the site will now not be cleared until summer 2015 after unexpected “issues” were encountered with the structure of the building.
