Gizmo: Glasgow Tower Still No Use

The owners of the trouble-hit Glasgow Science Tower have admitted that they have no idea when it will re-open. The 10_million_GBP malfunctioning tourist attraction closed six months ago after being plagued by a string of problems, which on one occasion saw ten people rescued from its lift by firemen. The 416ft tower is Scotland's tallest free-standing structure and the only tourist attraction in the world that can rotate 360 degrees. However, since opening in summer 2001, it has been bedevilled by mechanical failures, meaning it has not been open for longer than six months at a time. Staff have said it would 'definitely not' be open by Easter. Yesterday a spokesman said:
'I can't confirm any date. 'We are still placing pressure on the contractors and designers. 'Obviously, it's just as frustrating for us as it is for the public.'
