THE demolition team knocking down a former Taunton swimming pool has reduced most of the learner pool to rubble.

The workers have knocked through to the main pool at St James Pool.

The building, which closed when a new pool opened at Blackbrook Pavilion, is being demolished ahead of a multi-million pound development on Coal Orchard Car Park.

The car park is currently closed during the current section of demolition, but businesses in the area are trading a usual.

The work is due to finish early next month, while work on the Coal Orchard development is scheduled to start in February.
