Drone images taken by the Express & Star show the ruins of The Fiddlers Arms on Straits Road, Lower Gornal, which has this week been reduced to rubble after the bulldozers moved in.

The site is set to be transformed into a cul-de-sac featuring nine homes, including eight three-bed semis and one four-bed detached house.

The pub, which dated back to the mid-1800s, closed down in 2017 and was ravaged by fire on several occasions.
