Internet rumours that the former Woolworths store in Ilkeston is to be transformed into a mosque have been quashed by the council and the building’s owners.

The Bath Street property, which has fallen into a state of disrepair since the high street giant closed down in 2004, is currently owned by the international Muslim organisation, The World Federation of Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri Muslim Communities.

But a spokesman for the Middlesex based charity confirmed to the Advertiser this week that there are no such plans and the building is up for sale.
