Ladbrokes on Station Road(Ainsdale Village) has today been closed. Environmental services are currently working inside the bookmakers.

This store has recently been renovated. A reporter asked a contractor why they were here only a short time after renovation work?  And he replied: “They are only scraping stuff from the ceiling”

A regular user of the bookmakers said: “There are rumors circulating of asbestos contamination. Have customers been at risk…. Why was this not identified when shop was recently fitted out?

No one at Ladbrokes was available to comment on the closure.
