Landmark building bids farewell
Tollgate House
It has cost about the same to pull down the block as it did to build it
The final pieces of one of Bristol's landmark buildings are due to be taken down on Wednesday.

Tollgate House, at the end of the M32, had dominated the city's skyline for some 30 years.

But since January it has been steadily demolished to make way for a state-of- the-art car park as part of the 500m revamp of the Broadmead shopping area.

Contractors demolished the building one floor at a time. It cost about 3.5m to build and about the same to pull down.
