See the attached.

I used the Edit > Replace as suggested to convert column A and then I formatted that column to still show the time (although you can now format any way you want - e.g. without time)

Column B has the time removed using INT function. If you format to show time as I have done then all time values are 00:00

....if you want a formula that will remove the extra charcater and the time all in one go then you could use this formula in B2

=INT(SUBSTITUTE(A2,CHAR(160),""))

That will accommodate situations where you have 1 extra character as your data seems to, or any other number including zero. It will also allow different date formats, e.g. month shown as a single digit
