Councillors have called for urgent action at an abandoned cinema which is becoming an "eye-sore" in the town.

The ABC cinema in Tunbridge Wells has been empty for 20 years, with councillors from the local authority now calling for something to be done.

Tunbridge Wells councillors call for urgent action at "eye sore" cinema

The site, in Mount Plesant Road, has been abandoned since the cinema closed in 2000, before the building was demolished in 2014.

Cllr David Scott (Con) said: "There's no getting away from it, it is an ugly site.

"I certainly don't believe anything is going to happen to that site until I see the engineering trucks on it.

"If it was going to be simple, it would have been done 20 years ago."
