Dramatic video footage has captured the moment explosives brought down a well-known road bridge.
The old Merafield Bridge at Plympton was demolished overnight on Saturday, marking the final stage of a £6.3 million maintenance project on the A38.
The bridge, built in 1969, was damaged by alkali silica reaction, more commonly known as “concrete cancer”.
A new bridge, which was built alongside the old one, was opened two weeks ago.
The old bridge was demolished on Saturday night and was spectacularly captured on camera by the demolition team.
