A new medical centre and pharmacy has been opened at a former bonfire site in west Belfast.

The Clear Pharmacy and Cornerstone Medical Centre on Shankill Road is part of a £10m investment on the site.

Phase one, worth £3.5m, has received £1.2m from the Department for Social Development and Minister Alex Attwood said: "This is good news for the people of west Belfast. The new pharmacy, medical surgeries and consultation rooms will bring major environmental, social and economic benefits to the Shankill Road."
