Northampton’s most famous son, comedian Alan Carr, says he has mixed feelings about the demolition of Greyfriars Bus Station in Northampton.

Tweeting last night, Carr looked back on his time growing back in the town.

“Don’t know how I feel about the demolition of Greyfriars bus station - I used to drink cider in there before I went to Roadmenders. #sobs,” he said.

Later, he added: “What are they replacing Greyfriars with? A trendy wine bar? *rolls eyes and shuffles off in slippers*.”

And then, he quipped: “Is that smelly cafe still there in the basement in Greyfriars bus station? You’d see people dry heaving before they got on their buses.”
