There is asbestos inside, and lots of other nasty things (including lots of pigeon mess), so unusually, the committee had to get dressed up in protective gear before going in for a look.
On a hot day, donning full protective overalls, hard hats and face masks was not particularly pleasant! But, it was an amusing picture, and a worthwhile visit, giving the committee a real insight into the state of the building before making a decision on the planning application related to it.
