PLEASE DEMOLISH OUR HELLISH TOWN.
FED-UP residents who want their entire town centre demolished as part of a TV show are a step closer to their dream.
Locals in Cumbernauld have begged Channel 4 bosses to crown their 1950s-built town Britain's worst eyesore and have it flattened.
Producers of the show Demolition have revealed that Cumbernauld - voted Scotland's worst town - has joined the pounds 431m Scottish Parliament in the final of 12 buildings people want bulldozed.
A show insider said: "We were stunned at the number of votes for Cumbernauld - they literally poured in after we asked people to vote for their worst building.
"The Scottish Parliament was also a surprise because it only opened last year and is up for some top design awards."
Earlier this year Channel 4 asked people to vote for buildings they want pulled down. A winner from the final 12 will be announced during the series.
Show presenter Janet Street-Porter has already been filming in the town for the series which starts mid-November.
