Bulldozers have begun demolition of one of the last standing terraces in English professional football.

Peterborough United's Moy's End should be knocked down by Christmas and a new 2,500-seat stand should be in place by next summer.

Stadium owner Peterborough City Council also plans to create a further education centre at the terrace as part of the revamp.

Moy's End is the first phase of work to turn the stadium into a seated ground.

All-seater stadiums have been compulsory in the Premier League since 1994, following Lord Justice Taylor's report after the Hillsborough disaster.
