BBC News is reporting that a 122 m-high industrial chimney that has dominated the Wiltshire skyline for decades is to be demolished in September.

The Westbury cement works were constructed in the early 1960s and mothballed in 2009.

The chimney will be "brought down by controlled explosion" on 18 September, according to site owners Tarmac.

The demolition marks the end of over 40 years of cement production at the site.

The cement works are about 1.6 km to the north east of Westbury.
