Goodbye to the crane outside Daniel department store

A massive crane that had become part of the landscape outside Daniel department store finally disappeared from view on Tuesday.

The crane has played a vital part in major reconstruction work taking place on the store's Peascod Street frontage and the immediate interior.

But as the work nears completion a team from the contractors scaled the heights and dismantled the huge machine, causing the road to be closed to all vehicles for a few hours.

Daniel's reconstruction plans ran into opposition from traditionalists in the town but were agreed by planning councillors on the Royal Borough, who accepted the need for the store to modernise.
