The full day's coverage of the Hydro Grand Hotel demolition in Timaru.

OPINION: In the immortal words of the Looney Toons, "that's all, folks".

The Hydro Grand Hotel, that imposing icon of Timaru's Bay Hill skyline, has been reduced to rubble in a demolition watched by hundreds of people both in person and online.

Many of those onlookers who kept watch from the Piazza bemoaned the demolition, saying it was a sad day in Timaru's history. Meanwhile, others were pleased to see the old girl come down after sitting, dilapidated and dangerous, for more than a decade.

The dome section on the iconic Hydro Grand Hotel in Timaru is demolished.

However you feel about the demolition, it's time now to cast our eyes to the future.
