Didcot power station demolition. The cooling towers at the disused coal-fired Didcot power station in Oxfordshire are demolished. Picture date: Sunday August 18, 2019. Demolition work began on the remains of the coal-fired power station where four workers were killed when it collapsed several years ago. Christopher Huxtable, 33, from Swansea, South Wales, Kenneth Cresswell, 57, and John Shaw, 61, both from Rotherham, South Yorkshire, and Michael Collings, 53, from Saltburn-by-the-Sea, Teesside, died after the partial collapse of the boiler house at the Didcot A plant in February 2016. Thames Valley Police and the Health and Safety Executive had launched a joint investigation to consider corporate manslaughter, gross negligence manslaughter and health and safety offences.
