Removing 70's-Style Gas Fire and Fireplace

Hi guys

I’m wanting to remove a horrible 70s style gas fire from Victorian property, and open up space for shelves in the void. Going to get an engineer round to disconnect and make gas safe, but unsure how to proceed with the removal part.

I feel like I could do it myself to save costs, but a little concerned over potential asbestos lurking beneath. The hearth has some sort of solid underlay between it and tiles which concerns me.

Does anyone have any experience in removing these sort of fireplaces?
