Greenock tower blocks demolished in explosion


Three blocks of multi-storey flats in Greenock have been blown up in a controlled explosion.

Local people gathered to watch the demolition which was carried out in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The flats were built in the late 1960s as part of a high density housing development in the Belville Street area.
