'Didcot 4' remembered two years on

Didcot Power Station wreckage
Thames Valley Police

Today marks two years since the boiler house at Didcot A Power Station collapsed, killing four men.

Workers Ken Cresswell, 57, John Shaw, 61, both from Rotherham, Michael Collings, 53, from Teesside, and Christopher Huxtable, 34, from Swansea, died in the collapse.

Sadie Cresswell, daughter of Mr Cresswell, wrote on Facebook that "nobody should go to work and not come home ever".

Didcot mayor Jackie Billington said the flag at the council's offices was at half mast to remember the victims.

Thames Valley Police says it is not known when its investigation into the incident will be complete.

Manslaughter charges are being considered, but the demolition company Coleman and Company, which employed the men, said there were "no grounds" for that.

Keith Cundall, the lawyer who represents three of the families, said: "The families want answers as to why this tragedy occurred, however they also know that an investigation of this sort will take time."

Investigations continue two years on from Didcot explosion

It's two years today since a building collapse at Didcot Power Station killed four men, two of them from Rotherham.

Laser art to light up the Barnsley sky tonight

An eye-catching spectacle is promised tonight in Barnsley and beyond.

It's called 'Neon River' and it'll shoot into the sky from Barnsley town centre and across the Dearne Valley.

Neon River logo
Barnsley Council

It's the work of artist Patrick Murphy who'll beam lasers from the top of the Digital Media Centre in the heart of Barnsley that'll be visible from ten miles away, so people in Doncaster and Rotherham might well see it, too.

The idea is to use light to create the effect of 'a river in the sky'.

Neon River was commissioned by the Dearne Valley Landscape Partnership (DVLP), as part of its Art of the Dearne project.

The DVLP says it works to protect, preserve and enhance the landscape of the Dearne Valley with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The light show can also be seen over the weekend.

Search for woman after fatal crash near Pontefract

The family of a man who died in a car crash earlier this week say they are "devastated" to have lost him. Police say they're now looking for a woman who stopped at the scene.

Robert Tucker
West Yorkshire Police

It happened on Monday at 07:30 on Wrangbrook Lane in Upton near Pontefract just off the A1, a red VW Golf and a Vauxhall van hit each other head-on.

The man who died - 56-year-old Robert Tucker from Barnsley - died at the scene. The driver of the VW, a 28-year-old woman, is still in hospital in serious condition.

Police say they now want a woman who stopped at the scene of the crash to come forward. Officers say she was in a red car- possibly a hatchback - but left before they arrived.

We are devastated to have lost a loving husband, father and grandfather. We loved him very much, miss him terribly and will never be the same without him.”

It wants businesses in the city to see them in action and to change their fleets to cut emissions.

You’ll probably see our drivers out on the road in them over the next few months and they will be telling us what they think of them; what they feel like to drive, how they sound, how far they go and how it feels to know that there is only water coming out of the tailpipe, not exhaust fumes."

Sheffield City Council was due to work on the tree on Chelsea Road in the Nether Edge area of the city last week, but aborted the plans after local activists were concerned about the tree's long-term future.

The city council says after a discussion with members of the Save Nether Edge Tree group, campaigners are now "supportive of work" to the tree.

Pruning is expected to continue this Friday after it was agreed that an independent tree surgeon would oversee the works.
