text "Germans destroy Wembley" from Martin Wallace:
DEMOLITION work finally started at Wembley yesterday ? with a
GERMAN bulldozer ripping the stadium apart.
The 130-ton machine called Goliath tore into the 80-year-old concrete home of English soccer.
But the monster excavator carried a St George flag ? draped across the back by driver Gabriel Ford, an ~ fan from Leyton, East London.
It will take six months to flatten the historic arena.
Demolition finally got the go-ahead last week after plans for a replacement £757million stadium were agreed after a seven-year saga.
The work started almost two years to the day since Germany?s last demolition job at Wembley ? beating England 1-0 in the venue?s final international match.
In just 30 minutes yesterday the press centre and VIP area in the North Stand were reduced to rubble.
Goliath- which has a 35-metre arm with giant mechanical shears on the end - was built specially for the Wembley job.
As it rumbled into action yesterday, England 1966 World Cup winner George Cohen said:"This is a sad day but we have to move on. She is an old lady forever etched in the memory of fans."
Even the Twin Towers will go - too flimsy to be preserved. But three tons of rubble will be sold to fans.
After the site is cleared a new Wembley will be born. A 90.000 seat stadium, tipped to be the best in the world, will feature a soaring 133-metre high arch and a sliding roof.
It will take four years to complete before staging English matches and cup finals. Aussie firm Multiplex, who built the 110.000-seater Stadium Australia for the Sydney Olympics, designed the new Wembley.
It is being financed partly by the GERMAN bank West LB with a £433 million loan. The FA is paying £148 million and Sport England £120 million.
FA chief executive Adam Crozier said: "Players and fans can look forward to enjoying facilities at what will be the best stadium in the world."
The Germans may think they had the last laugh - but the old venue will forever remain the site of England's greatest triumph, beating Germany 4 - 2 in the 1966 final.
text "Work starts and stops on Wembley" from Simon Burnton:
At precisely 11.09. a.m. yesterday, five years and 287 days after it was decided to build a new stadium at Wembley, work finally began at the site. Thirteen minutes later, workmen removed their hard hats and called it a day.
John Corcoran of Multiplex, the Australian construction film in charge of the project, made a short speech to mark the occasion. "The spirit of Wembley owes more to the inspiring feats of a nation's sporting heroes than it does to bricks and mortar," he said.
And with that, Goliath swung into action. Positioned between the famous twin towers, the specially-constructed 35-ton bulldozer punched nervously through a window in what was once the press room. At the controls an "excited but nervous" Gabriel Ford, an ~ fan from Leyton, curled the neck of his crane into a triumphant arch. He bashed in a few more windows, ripped off some roofing, and then stopped.
Assuming they can step up the pace it will take around six months, and some £93m, to complete the demolition.
i need one summary for each, i need your help!!!
