Developer details fire damage at Liverpool art deco gem

Art Deco former Littlewoods headquarters in Liverpool

Littlewoods Building suffers damage to west-wing clock tower, floor and roof

Fire damage to the huge art deco Littlewoods Building in Liverpool was limited to the west wing of the structure, but included its clock tower roof and floors, developer Captal & Centric has said.

The 1938 structure is at the heart of £50m proposals for a film-studio complex, drawn up by ShedKM, which had been due for submission to city council planners later this year.

However the practice said it was unsure how the timescale for the project, which has the backing of government agency Homes England, prospective tenant Twickenham Studios, and Liverpool City Council would be affected by the blaze.
