An unusual raffle prize... the chance to blow up a North East landmark.

The 230ft Steetley Chimney in Hartlepool has been flattened to clear the former chemical works for redevelopment.

The boy who pressed the button was Jamie brown, given the honour by his grandfather, Dave Fricker.

Local charities sold 6,000 raffle tickets in total.
