  12. 'Didcot 4' remembered two years on

    Didcot Power Station wreckage

    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."

  13. 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.

    Didcot aftermath

    Kenneth Cresswell and John Shaw died after the partial collapse of the boiler house at the Oxfordshire plant.

    Both men had been involved in preparing a tower for demolition when the collapse happened.

    The men who were killed

    The men's families continue their wait for a full inquest, and alongside that there are two ongoing investigations; one by the police, the other by the Health and Safety Executive.
