The picture of Watergate so many of us are familiar with no longer exists, now Lidl has been demolished.

The tall brick building has been razed to the ground to make way for a new, purpose-built Lidl supermarket, which it is planned will re-open early next year.

Lidl bosses say the new build will be more in keeping with other buildings in Watergate. They also plan to allow access into the car park from the road. Access is currently only allowed from Union Street. Parking spaces would be reduced from 86 to 77.
