Ferrybridge sentinels downed

More colling towers blasted during weekend implosion.

Demolition at Ferrybridge C Power Station in West Yorkshire has begun in what’s been described as a “significant milestone” in UK energy.

The demolition of the towers, which stood at 114 metres high, took around 10 seconds.

The West Yorkshire power station provided the UK with energy for 50 years, before its owners, SSE, closed the plant in March 2016, believing it to have no longer been economical.
