A 3.2km viaduct has been blown up in the Chinese city of Wuhan, setting the record as the longest concrete bridge to be demolished in the country.
Video footage of the explosion, which took place at night in the Central Chinese city, shows dust billowing from the bridge as it erupts and collapses.
The explosion set a new record for the longest concrete bridge ever demolished in China.
Built in 1997, the structure reportedly had 30 major gas pipelines running underneath it and residential buildings on either side, making the demolition very difficult.
