Inside ghost town shopping centre that lies abandoned 25 years after opening

An abandoned shopping centre lies empty and derelict 25 years after its flagship opening.

Five Sisters Freeport Shopping Village in West Lothian, Scotland, opened in 1996, with over 40 stores, claiming to be Scotland’s new premier outlet for designer clothes.

But after a huge decline by 2004, Freeport Leisure decided it was time to close the centre down and they shut up shop.

The site has been derelict ever since, with the BBC using it for filming on a zombie children’s show in 2015, Edinburgh Live reports.

The 50,000sq ft shopping centre attracted over a million visitors in its first year and promised to extend to include more leisure facilities, like a snow centre and a golf course.
