Crack shot

Three 11 storey tower blocks on what millions of fans of ITVs The Bill know as the Larchwood estate are being demolished by Willmot Dixon Housing as part of a 12M redevelopment. The superlong Samsung excavator that Falcon Demolition & Refurbishment is using for the job is fitted with the AE CB700 concrete cracker, supplied by PSE Machinery.

In real life Larchwood is the Phipps Bridge estate in the London Borough of Merton.
