After the first silo at Diageo's Port Ellen Maltings collapsed in the early hours of Friday last week, the second silo was taken down as well due to the fact that this one was damaged by the collapse of the first silo and became instable. At this moment the main road is still closed and there is a lot of police on the scene, I don't think Islay has seen so many policemen on the island at the same time before.
The pictures below, in chronological order, tell the complete story. They were taken by Yvonne Anderson who lives close by. Thanks Yvonne.
