One of the most iconic features of the East Lothian coast will disappear on Saturday when the Cockenzie power station towers are demolished.

They have caught people’s eyes since 1967, when the station opened, and continued to do so until 2013, when the station stopped generating energy.

The towers’ demolition is scheduled for 12 noon on Saturday September 26.
