Live video for nuclear demolition
Chapelcross
The towers have been a prominent feature for decades
The demolition of the cooling towers at Chapelcross nuclear plant near Annan is to be broadcast live on the internet.

The prominent landmark is to come down as part of the decommissioning process at the power plant.

British Nuclear Group has confirmed that a webcam will be used to allow people to watch the event from home.

A DVD is also to be produced of the removal of the four towers which have stood for nearly 50 years. No date has yet been set for the demolition.

BNG said the work would be carried out at a time when it would cause as little disruption as possible.

There will be a series of road closures and exclusion zones set up to maintain public safety.

Detailed information is expected to be issued before the demolition is carried out later this spring.
