One woman died and four other peo­ple were in­jured yes­ter­day as two high-rise blocks of flats were de­mol­ished in a mas­sive ex­plo­sion which rocked the Gor­bals area of Glas­gow. The woman who died was first thought to have suf­fered a heart at­tack af­ter a se­ries of ex­plo­sions ripped through the 22-storey blocks in El­iz­a­beth Square. But later po­lice said that chest in­juries suf­fered by He­len Tin­ney may have been caused by fly­ing de­bris from the ex­plo­sion. A 21-year-old preg­nant woman also fainted.
