Demolition planned for 'too tall' flats

A £1.5 million luxury apartment block could be bulldozed - because it is just over the length of a school ruler too tall.
Councillors in Salford, Greater Manchester, have ruled that the block of five £300,000 apartments has broken the original planning rules.

The building is now 35 centimetres too high and 45 centimetres too wide on one side because of a window.

Stringent planning restrictions were imposed on the original development, called Bridgewater Court, because the building is in Worsley, a conservation area.
