Thousands of people watched the 17-storey Glencairn Tower in Motherwell razed to the ground today by Technical Demolition Services (TDS) with support from Precision Demolition Company.

The tower block was built in the 1960s and was removed to make way for new low-rise affordable housing.
Street-cleaning teams have cleared the roads around where the tower block stood and Strathclyde Fire and Rescue were on hand to hose down any buildings affected by the dust.
The council said the only damage identified by contractors was a cracked window.
Craig Wilson from Technical Demolition Services told the BBC a total of 64 charges were set-off during the demolition operation.
He added: “Undertaking a blow-down is a huge task and its success is all in the planning and co-operation of the contractor and the client.”
