The site closed in 2007
A well-known Shropshire landmark has been toppled as part of plans to demolish a former sugar beet factory.
The chimney at the processing plant in Allscott, near Wellington, was so tall it had aircraft warning lights on the top.
The National Farmers Union and county council estimated that 420 employees, farm workers and contractors were affected when the site closed in 2007.
It is not yet known when the remaining silos will be brought down.
Announcing the closure in Allscott and at another factory near York, British Sugar said it would centralise its business at Cantley and Wissington in Norfolk, Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk and Newark in Nottinghamshire.
