Hemmingway attacks 'unsustainable' Leeds

Design guru Wayne Hemingway has branded Leeds unsustainable and claimed it is full of copy-cat buildings that will have to be pulled down in 50 years.

Speaking at the council-led Leeds City Centre Vision conference the Red or Dead founder launched the astonishing broadside at the quality of the architecture and the public realm in the West Yorkshire hub.

He labelled it the "most unsustainable city" and claimed it was full of buildings that were "totally indistinguishable from each other".
