ADDITIONAL warning signs have been put up at a derelict Weston hotel after two people were injured on the site.
They have been placed outside the Dorville Hotel in Madeira Road by Avon and Somerset Constabulary.
They warn: “This building is unsafe. Do not enter this area. There is a real danger of serious injury.”
Planning permission for the hotel to be demolished - and for 20 flats to be built in its place - was granted in April last year.
Additional signs warn anti-climb has been put on the surrounding fences and reveal the presence of asbestos in the building.
PCSO Nicola Mitchell said: “Derelict buildings are dangerous and anyone who goes into them runs the risk of suffering serious injuries or even worse.
“We’ve issued a notice on the building warning people to stay out of it and have spoken with the site owners about the issue.
“We’ve been told the building is due to be demolished in the near future, but I ask anyone who sees people going into or leaving the site to call police via the 24-hour enquiry centre on 101.”
