Captain Sir Tom Moore's family spa pool complex has been given six weeks to be torn down by his family after they failed to appeal against a demolition notice on the site of the £1.2 million house.

Sir Tom's daughter, Hannah Ingram-Moore, 53, had originally been granted planning permission to build a single-storey building next to her Grade II-listed house, The Old Rectory, in Bedford.
