An old derelict school building in Normoss in the UK has been torn down but not before being labeled “Beirut” by the head of the demolition company:

Glyn Watkins, owner of JR Demolitions, said: “You can see where the kids have got into the building and pulled bricks out to make a den and caused the roof to collapse.

“If anyone walked up there it would collapse. It is like Beirut and locals

Here’s what Beirut looks like to Glyn:

I fail to see the similarity. One LLB certificate is on its way.
