A COURT building in the centre of Keighley has been sold - just days before it was due to go to auction.

Keighley County Court, based on North Street in the town centre, has been empty for years, with numerous planned development failing to come to pass.

The property was listed for auction by Pugh Property in December, but failed to sell for its £150,000 guide price.

£10 million development for Keighley town centre, including new Aldi, is approved

The building was once again due to go under the hammer at a property auction on January 20 - this time with a guide price of £120,000.

However, Pugh’s website has now listed the property as having been sold to a buyer before it could make it to auction.

Details of the buyer have not yet been revealed.
