Didcot power station demolition caught on camera
Three disused cooling towers at Didcot A Power Station have been demolished using more than 180kg of explosives.
The explosion, which flattened 36,000 tonnes of material, lasted less than a minute and was streamed live online by Demolition firm Coleman and Company.
Hundreds of people arrived at the site to watch the towers come down despite warnings of a huge dust cloud.
