Storming to the end…

Final explosive event at Didcot A Power Station completed.

Even as the UK was battered by high winds and rain as part of Storm Ciara, the explosive demolition team at Brown and Mason was carrying out its final checks ahead of what would be the last explosive event at the ill-fated Didcot A Power Station.

Yesterday morning, less than two weeks before the tragic boiler house collapse that left four demolition workers dead, the company completed the felling of the last remaining chimney which – at 200 metres – ranked as one of the tallest structures in the UK.
