Demolition of 1960's tower blocks

People on Hackney Marshes, east London, watching explosives bring down two 20-storey tower blocks yesterday. Hackney council said it had consulted the authorities in Glasgow, where a woman was killed in a similar blast last month, before going ahead. The 1960s blocks, Ambergate and Norbury Court on Clapton Park Estate, will be replaced with traditional houses and low-rise flats Photograph: Edward Webb
