It could be almost a year before the Lanthorn community centre reopens it was claimed this week after it was revealed work on the site had descended into a shambles.

Scheduled to reopen at the start of this year, work at the Livingston landmark is now six months behind and more than £1m over budget.

RAAC roof panels were removed in the Autumn and the building left open to the elements over winter, causing major structural damage.
