AN investigation has been launched after fire ripped through a derelict building at Carfin cross.

Emergency services rushed to the former mosque building following reports it was well ablaze on Thursday evening.

The damage caused has reduced the already dilapidated building to little more than a wreck, with North Lanarkshire Council confirming it will need to be demolished as the Times & Speaker went to press.

For the full story and more pictures, see the April 4 edition of the Times & Speaker.
