DEMOLITION work is continuing on land that will house a new Premier Inn hotel in Birkenhead.

The 67-bedroom building, in the Crown Prosecution Service's former premises on Conway Street, is due to open early next year. Thirty jobs will be created.

Part of the existing building is being removed by a "robotic dinosaur" demolition rig while the remainder will be retained and converted into hotel rooms.

The development was approved by Wirral's planning committee in 2012.

Nicholas Johnston, acquisition manager for the leisure firm, said: "We are delighted to be starting work on our new Premier Inn hotel in Birkenhead.

"This is great news for the local area as the new Premier Inn will create new jobs and help to attract additional visitors to the area, increasing trade for existing local retailers and businesses.

"Our new hotel will secure the long-term active future of this prominent site on Conway Street and create 30 new local jobs, including full and part-time positions."
