The existing floodlights at Turf Moor have been removed to make way for a new state of the art LED system, in order to comply with Premier League broadcasting requirements.
Below is a gallery of the moment the lights were dismantled.
The new lighting system, which includes two new 44m high replacement towers and replacement and cabling to all 160, new lamp positions, will double the current light level output for the start of the 2016/17 Premier League season.
Work on the removal of the eastern tower begins
The tower is cut into three pieces
The first piece is detached...
... and lowered onto Harry Potts Way
The lights themselves are removed.
