Breaking News – Didcot to be blasted…

Families of missing men’s worst fears realised.

Breaking NewsExplosives are to be used to demolish the remaining section of the collapsed Didcot Power Station.

Four workers were killed and five injured in the collapse in February, with one body recovered from the site.

In a statement, RWE Npower said it knew controlled explosions at the site would be distressing for the missing workers’ families.
