A NEW state-of-the-art dental surgery has opened in Bollo Bridge Road, South Acton.

Ealing Deputy Mayor Cllr Abdullah Gulaid and Rupa Huq MP were present to cut the ribbon at an open day.

The former Acton Town surgery in Hanbury Road, which was due for demolition, has re-emerged as a £500,000 purpose-built practice on a new parade.

Rupa Huq MP said: “The regeneration of South Acton has come on apace in recent years. It’s almost unrecognisable from the place it used to be and this practice is a part of that process.”

The South Acton estate was home to the fictional Nelson Mandela House, Del Boy’s tower block from TV’s Only Fools and Horses.
