Here’s the moment when Glasgow’s iconic Red Road flats were very nearly razed to the ground.

Thousands of people - including the Herald’s photographer - looked on as the buildings were demolished.

But it didn’t go entirely to plan - with parts of two of the towers remaining partially standing.

Work will take place this week to complete the demolition.
