    Todays action from the top of a 211 bus. I've been working out of town these past few days but normal service will now resume.

    What's left still looks very do-able to me...

    This demolition is becoming rather addictive! Watched for over an hour this morning as the nibbler worked its way along pipework on the roof. Then pulled a metal tank from the roof.

    The first of the pipes come down:

    A water or air conditioning tank is revealed:

    and is soon on the edge of the abyss:

    The jaws of the nibbler struggled to get hold of the tank but once they got a got a grip it soon collapsed and was dragged off the roof.

    Watch the vid (which photobucket has compressed the arse off) Sorry for camera shake but Spielberg I aint ;)

    BTW this site is completely flat as of last month. There was a digger sat on a pile of rubble and that was it.
