Investigators in Denmark are still trying to work out why a 50 metre silo fell in the wrong direction on Friday during a routine demolition.

The silo landed on an adjacent library and cultural centre. No-one was hurt but the damage was extensive.

Explosives experts in the town of Vordingborg in South Denmark had spent six months preparing the demolition.
