Demolition teams moved in to knock down the home of an eighty year old woman in Dumfries today.

Vida Paul's property on Brooms Road fell into disrepair after a fire in 2009.

Neighbours complained it had become a blot on the landscape.

Mrs Paul says she is heartbroken that the local council has now destroyed the place she called home for more than 30 years.
