The Kingston and St Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAMC) has kept its promise to demolish a derelict building at 18 Sutton Street in downtown Kingston which was posing a threat to pedestrians and motorists.

On Wednesday, days after residents of the area pointed the Jamaica Observer to the danger posed by flimsy structure on a road which is used by hundreds of students every day, a team from the KSAMC tore down the building, to the relief of many persons.
