You'd have thought things couldn't get worse for Ian Simpson and his troubled Brunswick Quay tower plan in Liverpool. The 50-storey skyscraper has been turned down once by planners and it seems a resubmitted scheme will go the same way. Now, Astragal has learnt, the council has somehow managed to mangle the architect's model, causing nearly £10,000-worth of damage. One story has it that the mock-up was chopped in half with a hacksaw to fit it into a cupboard. Another that it was dragged through the corridors as it was too heavy to lift. Does the council want a groundscraper?
