Jamie Oliver’s plan to turn a row of derelict Victorian King’s Cross offices in to a pub and restaurant has been given the go-ahead.

Camden Council approved proposals for the Fish & Coal buildings and Wharf Road Arches on the banks of the Regent’s Canal last week.

The buildings were erected in the early 1850s but had fallen in to disrepair and were gutted by fire in 1983. They will now be restored with the restaurant due to open in 2016.
