Video: Red Road tower block demolished
Glasgow landmark blasted to the ground
THOUSANDS of people have witnessed the demolition of a local landmark.
One of the towering blocks of the Red Road flats in Glasgow, which were once the highest residential structures in Europe, was brought down in a cloud of dust.
It took 275 kilos of explosives to reduce the steel-framed tower block to rubble. The remaining towers are also to be demolished.
