How the Beech Hill demolition happened

Beech Hill tower blocks demolition in pictures and what is the next stage of the project

The imposing tower blocks in Beech Hill which stood empty for more than ten years have been demolished in a scheme that will create hundreds of new homes.

We take a look back over the months at how the three tower blocks that were a feature of the Halifax skyline were turned into dust in these pictures.
