Rock star Shirley Manson has told of her sadness at plans to close the community centre where her chart-topping band Garbage were honed.

The Evening News told earlier this week how council officers were set to recommend the closure of Inch House.

The building has suffered a series of maintenance problems and requires extensive work.

A campaign launched to save it has now won the backing of Capital-born Manson.

Plans to close the centre are due to be put before city councillors in May.
