Construction and project manager Mace confirmed that it is trying to find “the most appropriate strategy to remediate the steel frames” of the Corrie stage areas currently under construction.

Some Brits have been watching the twists and turns of the street’s inhabitants since 1960 and Hotline would dread to think what would happen if they were deprived of their weekly fix.
