Diamond Buses today posted an update, saying: "We have received notification from Wigan Council that the building on Elliott Street in Tyldesley has “been made safe”, following the reconstruction of the scaffolding to hold it up.

"As a result, all services through Tyldesley are running as normal."

Last summer, highways officials sealed off Tyldesley town centre as the same building was found to be in danger of collapse, leading to flats being evacuated from the four-story complex.
