VIDEO: Buildings demolished in controlled explosions at former Longannet power station

Work to clear the former Longannet power station continued this week with the demolition of more structures at the sprawling site.

Coal stock towers and a further building known as Unit 2 Precips were brought down in controlled explosions on Thursday.

Longannet was closed by ScottishPower in 2016. The company says it shut the country’s last coal-fired power station as part of its commitment to decarbonising the economy and a stronger focus on renewable power.
