Work has started on the demolition of the Barrons building, home of the Dragon Cafe, in Rattray St.

Two separate sections of the building collapsed on January 12, and parapets fell on to the roof, causing it to collapse inwards on to the second storey.

Demolition consents for the building, and the next door N and E S. Paterson building, were signed early last month, after engineers reported there was a danger of collapse.
