New Walk Centre demolition: Slow motion footage of towers collapsing

0
0

This astonishing slow motion footage shows the two towers of Leicester's New Walk Centre being demolished.

The buildings were razed to the ground in a matter of seconds - but this film gives you time to see even more detail of the demolition - including masonry falling and the huge dust cloud rising up about the site.

The towers - an eight and 13 storey block - were demolished at 10am today following months of preparation.

Thousands of people gathered around the tightly manned cordon of the 150 metre exclusion zone while others sought out lofty vantage points across the city to witness the fall of the remnants of the concrete blocks.

This video footage was taken from the top of multi-storey car park in Welford Road by Matt Short - and turned into slow motion by Shawn Ryan (www.shawn-ryan.co.uk)
