The centre will be known as The Beacon when the multi-million pound extension opens in the run up to Christmas next year.

In the last few weeks the steel framework has started rising out of the ground.

Reporter Annemarie Field spoke to Neil Crawford, the retail development manager from Legal & General, which owns the Arndale about what is happening on the site since the stretch of shops and the Gildredge Pub were demolished.
