    I'll be driving past them for the last time on Saturday morning, when I drive to Manchester Airport.

    So that's why the M1 will be closed on Sunday then...

    Should have left them there and perched wind turbines on top of them.

    We watched the ones close to here being demolished about 9 years ago. Very spectacular as they just seemed to fold like paper before a mountain of dust rose from where they once stood.

    Wasn't sorry to seem them go. We bought the house in the knowledge they were about to be knocked down.

    A few years later I was on the site itself. The rubble had been cleared but you could still see the outline of where they had been. Absolutely huge.
