Sighthill high rise demolition & contamination
Sighthill high rise demolition & contamination
There’s a terrible smell all over Glasgow’s Sighthill Park and while one worker drilled into the ground he told me the land is contaminated as black stinking sludge came out of the ground.

It looks like burst sewage pipes are to blame for the gigantic mess judging by all the scarring of the land. While in the background demolition teams set about removing one of the last two high rise tower blocks along the main road.
