Topic - Glass splashback - how to remove (safely)?

Martin W on 30 Nov 2012
The glass splashback above our hob has developed a crack (we suspect due to movement in the wall behind, though it might be heat related). In planning its replacement, the question has arisen of how to remove it, given that it's glued to the plaster. The brute force and ignorance approach which I understand is traditional with tiles would seem likely to shower the kitchen with shards of broken glass. Experience leads me to believe that this might create a hazard for users of the aforementioned workspace.

The best suggestions I've been offered so far have been to cover the face of the glass with tape eg duct tape, or Blue Peter stylee sticky-backed plastic, and then proceed as for tiles. While this approach seems likely to work, I'm wondering if there are better ways to do it?
