Date set for Didcot blast…

Remnants of collapsed boiler house to fall on Sunday.

The final section of the collapsed Didcot Power Station will be demolished in the early hours of Sunday.

Four men died when the plant partially collapsed in February. One man’s body has been recovered, but the remaining three have yet to be found.

Safety concerns have been blamed for the delay, which has drawn criticism from the victims’ families. RWE Npower said the recovery operation will resume as soon as the building is demolished and the area declared safe.

The remains of the boiler house at the Didcot A plant will be brought down between 05:30 and 07:30 BST.

Earlier this week, RWE Npower sent letters to people living nearby informing them preparations for the demolition had started.
