Didcot cooling towers demolished in a controlled explosion

Didcot A's 375ft (114.3m) high towers were brought down using explosive charges at 07:00 BST.

Minutes later, people in the area said they had suffered a power cut and an online tracker showed more than 2700 postcodes were affected.

The coal-fired station was turned off in 2013 after 43 years in service.
