A MEMBER of the public hoping to capture the demolition of an iconic Glasgow tower block was left frustrated by an ill-timed bus.

The cameraman had set up with a clear line of sight of the Norfolk Court tower block in order to capture the moment the building fell.

A bus rolls into the frame just as the demolition begins and stops while the driver watches, obscuring the scene and ruining the one-off chance to capture history in the making.

The towers at Norfolk Court in the Gorbals have been a part of the Glasgow skyline since the 1970s but are to be replaced by a development of 201 new homes. Their demolition brought to an end more than 40 years of history.

The bus eventually drives on and out of shot just as the dust is settling.
