I thought it was meant to be this morning, unless the weather turned out bad, in which case it would be the same day as the marathon. Nothing online to say that it's changed, or happened?

It is 5pm Sunday so as not to clash with the race.

Looked like it was all down except the pillars this morning.

According to Fridays Press the implosion has been delayed due to machinery breakdowns.

They don't want us to go down there, but surely it will be super exciting to at least hear it from nearby. last time the sound travelled cos of low cloud cover, but there isn't any today.

Think I'll toddle off in the general direction with my dog.

Saw it on youtube. What a shit job they did of that!

robyn35, Jun 1, 5:04am
did that go wrong, the building hasnt really even broken up, it fell forwards, thought it was meant to pancake

dannyboy24, Jun 1, 5:04am
Can't believe they cut to that different camera angle when first charges went off on the live stream.

kiwimade64, Jun 1, 5:04am
ooohhh just saw the ChCh police station being imploded. fell to the left. was that meant to happen?

tillsbury, Jun 1, 5:04am
Yup. Big fail.

gordonh69, Jun 1, 5:05am
Something not quite right. piss poor

league_fan, Jun 1, 5:05am
I don't think it went like planned. I've never seen an imploded building intact on it's side quite like that before now! Usually they are simply left as rubble.

marymc, Jun 1, 5:05am
Watching it live on Stuff - I did think it would topple over in a more spectacular way

gaspodetwd, Jun 1, 5:06am
We are 12 km away and heard the charges go off in real life. There was a long delay of about three minutes before we go to see it. I thought it was meant to be in real time?

nicsta4, Jun 1, 5:08am

honest-reliable, Jun 1, 5:09am
