Gone in 10 seconds

ALMOST 40 years of history was gone in less than 10 seconds as a pair of
landmark Glasgow flats were demolished.


The two Gorbals tower blocks were razed to the ground yesterday morning
with hundreds of people gathering to watch the dramatic event.

The blocks in Stirlingfauld Place were once home to up to 2000 people in
the 552 flats. They were built between 1970 and 1973 at a cost of 1.8 million
but it took 1m to demolish them.

And it was a day of mixed emotions for local residents.

Caroline Carnochan, 41, grew up in the flats, living there for 27 years. She
said: "They were great flats we had good times there and I feel sad to see
them go."

But Daniel McFadden, 73, who has lived in the Gorbals all his life, said: "I will
be glad to see them go. They're going to renovate the area. It's a step forward."

A series of loud bangs in the area at 9.50am marked the end of the high-rise
flats and the ground shook as the 23-storey blocks fell to the cheers of the crowds.

Fantastic photos and videos          

Sorry I forgot all about this.

A friend of mine who use to stay in the flats was there to see them coming down. Hope none of you met him as I understand someone stood in front of him and he was not too please. I think there was some kind of freak accident as the guy fainted or something    

Looks like you have had a good couple of days activity

Is this the fella Alex?

Glasgow to top the Bill in TV show

GLASGOW is to double for Britain's most famous police beat thanks to dramatic
footage of a demolition.


The Gorbals will transform into Sunhill for scenes to be used in a new
episode of The Bill.

Hundreds of local residents watched in awe as the Stirlingfaulds flats were
reduced to rubble in just a few seconds earlier this month, marking the
end of an era for the area.

And millions of viewers will also get the chance to see the jaw-dropping
moment on August 21 as part of one of the ITV show's most exciting
storylines yet.

Bosses usually make the popular police drama in East London but they
came to Glasgow to film the two 23-storey blocks being flattened.

Part of the story has two Sunhill characters running for their lives as the
building they are in is about to explode.

Executive producer Jonathan Young said: "This was a fantastic opportunity
to combine a real-life explosive situation with a dramatic episode of The
Bill.

"The outcome looks brilliant - real edge-of-the-seat stuff."
