The decaying site appears to have been a hotspot for youngsters, with only last month children seen playing at the old Tories Club in Earlstown.

The Star reported in January that residents were concerned the building would still be accessible.

Newton-le-Willows Western Councilor Terry Maguire took up the issue after he was approached by worried locals.

Earlier this year Cllr Maguire said: “I have learned that the old Tory Club building on Earle St is very dangerous.

“The worrying thing seems to be that young people congregate at night at the back of the building, and this puts them at great risk because the building is in a very dangerous condition.

I have reported this to the council and the police.”

The issue is believed to have been resolved, however, earlier this week there were other reports of children playing in the precarious Earl Street building.

Cllr Maguire took up the ongoing issue as the old Tory club is in “a very fragile state”.

The star understands that danger signs have now been placed on the decaying building with the structural engineer from the owners scheduled.
