Longannet power station chimney blown up

The 600 foot high chimney stack at Longannet power station in Fife was brought down by controlled explosion.

The Fife site produced Scotland‘s last coal-fired energy until it ceased operation in 2016.

The chimney was the largest free-standing structure in Scotland and was a local landmark for generations.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon pushed the button to ignite 700kg of explosives, bringing down the chimney stack.
