Iconic 149-metre tall power station chimneys blown up in Scotland
Two iconic power station chimneys in eastern Scotland were demolished on Saturday. The twin chimney stacks at the former Cockenzie Power Station in East Lothian were blown up in a controlled explosion. Thousands of people gathered to watch the demolition. The 149-metre (489-feet) tall chimney stacks had dominated the local skyline for the past 50 years.
