A former hotel in Redcar has been named as one of the top 10 most “endangered” buildings in the country.

Red Barns, which was built in 1868 and is the Grade II listed former home of the Victorian explorer Gertrude Bell, has been included on a 2016 list of the Top Ten Endangered Buildings in England and Wales.

The list has been compiled by the National architectural charity the Victorian Society.

Campaigners, including Redcar MP Anna Turley launched a bid in July to save Red Barns from disrepair and turn it into a community resource.

The Victorian Society nows hopes that by including Red Barns on its latest list may help to prompt action.

The society says that urgent action is needed now to ensure that the building survives.
