Re: Tower Block Demolitions - Rolling Updates!

I'm hearing that a number of residents in the surrounding houses were ready to refuse to be evacuated from their properties to accommodate the blow down - I'm sure the negative publicity that would have ensued played a part in ditching the ceremonial demolition. H&S is used all too often as an e...
