Work has started on demolishing the old Medway fire station as a two new stations are to be built.

There were originally three stations in Medway, but Chatham and Gillingham were closed in 2011 and Kent Fire and Rescue are now in the process of building two new stations to cover the Towns.

The Watling Street station is more than 60 years old and was in need of extensive repair. Work has now started on pulling it down, with a new one to be built on-site and finished around September 2015.

Not all the grounds will be used and a large chunk will be sectioned off and sold.

As part of the plans a new station is also to be built in Marconi Way, Rochester, expected to be finished sometime in 2015, and both stations will be staffed 365 days a year.
