A charity is attempting to turn a disused world war one sea fort
into a rehabilitation centre for drug misusers.
Bull Sands Fort in the middle of the Humber Estuary used to be home
to 600 soldiers protecting the north east coast but is now
Charity Streetwise wants to transform the grade two-listed fort
into a 200-bed centre where drug misusers could voluntarily go to
take part in a 30-day programme to get clean and begin rebuilding
It hopes to recoup the costs of the project by charging councils
for sending drug users in their area on the programme.
Rehabilitation staff would offer intensive treatment.
