The flats have been demolished to make way for a £24m housing development which will see 200 new homes built.

An exclusion zone was set up around the 24-storey building before the blast took place at 10.30am.

The past 12 months has seen a numnber of the city’s high rise flats demolished including the Red Road flats which

were once the most densely populated tower blocks in Europe.
