Tynecastle's main stand is to be demolished this summer after 103 years

While work has already started on erecting the new stand, the stand will be slowly taken down from today.

Fans said farwell to the 103-year-old main stand during their last-ever match in front of a packed Tynecastle.

Brick by brick, the stand will slowly be taken down with a new development already taking shape.
