In Brief: Tricorn Centre work set to begin

The 1960s concrete car park and shopping centre will make way for a mixed-use scheme, including a department store and public open spaces. Mike Hancock, Portsmouth City Council's lead member for planning, regeneration, economic development and property, said: "We are delighted that work can finally start to remove this eyesore from our city centre."
