Implosion marks the end for Cumbrian power station

An iconic gas-fired power station at Roosecote has been demolished in a controlled explosion.

Energy giant Centrica mothballed the site in 2012 due to the volatile market – it had generated electricity from coal, then gas, for around 60 years.

Ron Hull Demolition carried out the explosive demolition at approximately 4 pm yesterday afternoon.
