These latest pictures of West Ham’s former home show that one of the two famous turrets has been removed, as well as the main entrance.

Various rooms and corridors inside the stadium - including one painted claret and blue - are visible from Green Street.

Demolition work at the 112-year-old Boleyn Ground began in September.

The site will be turned into an 842-home development known as Upton Gardens.
