Greyfriars Bus Station, Northampton, on the way out
The bus company Stagecoach may receive £5.5m during 2011/12 as compensation for having to move out of its base in Greyfriars Bus Station, reports the Northampton Chronicle & Echo.
I don't quite understand this. If I were Stagecoach I would be demanding compensation for having to use this dreadful hole in the first place.
Still, £5.5m is cheap if it means getting rid of one of Britain's most hated buildings. And congratulations to the excellent Lib Dem councillor Richard Church for his persistence in this cause.
