Stark photos show the ongoing demolition of Leisure World to make way for a new development.

The site – which boasted a cinema, restaurants, and popular nightclub Oceana – has stood empty since 2020.

Permission was granted to redevelop the site three years ago at a hefty cost of £250m.

But the proposed changes by Sovereign Centros, which included 650 homes, two hotels and a cinema, have stalled.

Questions surrounding the ambitious scheme remain.

Associated British Ports (ABP) has since been given the green light to flatten the site and use the council-owned land at West Quay Road for port-related parking and vehicle storage for up to five years.

The demolition of the site is set to last for three months, according to ABP.
