Three disused cooling towers at a power station in Oxfordshire have been demolished using more than 180kg of explosives.

The explosion, which flattened 36,000 tonnes of material, lasted less than a minute and was streamed live online.

Hundreds of people arrived at the site to watch the towers come down, despite warnings of a huge dust cloud.
