Demolition of spa complex at Captain Tom Moore’s family home inches closer as workmen put up fences in preparation

DEMOLITION of Captain Tom Moore’s family spa complex is imminent as workmen set up on site.

Boxes of Captain Tom’s achievement plaques including a BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award and Guinness Book of Records certificate were seen being wheeled out in a green garden trolley.

Paintings and a model aircraft were among other items spotted in the clear out ahead of demo-day set for February 7.

Today, workmen were seen erecting blue tarpaulins around the spa complex, which sits opposite Hannah’s £1.2million mansion, and more belongings were removed.

Heaps of black bin bags and unwanted furniture have been snapped collecting outside, alongside an abandoned running machine and pots of paint.

It comes as Hannah and husband Colin fought to overturn a council decision to tear down the complex in a long-running dispute.

We have to accept that we made a decision, and it was probably the wrong one.”

They had six weeks to save the “unauthorised” building after losing a court case in October – but failed to launch an appeal.

The Planning Inspectorate previously ruled the building will have to be pulled down in three months as it was built illegally.

Hannah and her husband were initially granted permission from Central Bedfordshire Council to build a small charity office for the Captain Tom Foundation in 2021.

More temporary fencing has been put up today
