Since St David's Hotel in Harlech, Gwynedd, closed its doors more than 10 years ago, the only guests staying there have been a colony of bats.

The building is now falling apart and is now considered an eyesore, which is why there are now plans to demolish it.

But bats are protected by law and will need to be relocated, so Snowdonia National Park Authority will now build a bat barn so the hotel can be taken down without disturbing the animals.
