Workers have started dismantling a “hated” building in Bournemouth.
The Imax cinema, labelled an eyesore by residents who have complained it blocks sea views, is due to be completely demolished in early 2013.

A spokesman for Bournemouth Borough Council said a “new outdoor events space” would open in its place by next summer.
External deconstruction work will be carried out between January and March.
