There was fury last night as the iconic, Western Infirmary in Glasgow was demolished with over 500 patients still inside.
The University of Glasgow, who now own the property and ordered its demolition to make way for new campus buildings, were unrepentant last night.
A university spokesman told Dafty News: “It was bad enough having to pay £14 million for the place without the added expense of moving patients to another hospital.
“Let’s be honest here, there’s a good chance that some of them would have died in any case”
This latest move is reminiscent of the recent demolition of The Grosvenor Hotel in London’s exclusive Knightsbridge, which took place while 35 people were just sitting down to high tea in The King George V Lounge.
