One of the few remaining standing terraces in English professional football has been demolished.

Peterborough United's Moy's End has been knocked down to make way for a new 2,560-seat stand, which should be completed by October 2014.

The £9.5m project will also see an education and skills centre built within the stand.

It is the first stage of work to make the London Road stadium all-seater, raising capacity from 14,000 to 19,000.

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