Two tower blocks on Crown Street/Sandiefield Road in the Gorbals have been demolished in controlled explosions.

The 24-Storey towers were 69m tall and contained almost 400 flats.  They were completed in 1971.

The towers were demolished to make way for a new health centre, social housing and office accommodation.

The work is part of a £100m regeneration project by New Gorbals Housing Association aimed at transforming the Hutchesontown area.
