The explosive charges were designed to weaken the base of the stack, enabling a highly controlled fall in a designated zone.
There were no dust or weather related issues during this morning’s operation.
The stack felled this morning is NOT the iconic 200m high Northern stack, which remains on schedule for demolition in April/May this year TBC.
