Littlebrook Power Station: Towering chimney demolished

Hundreds of people watched the moment a towering chimney of a former power station turned into a cloud of smoke.

The landmark in Dartford, Kent, collapsed after a "powerful boom" from a controlled explosion at about 08:00 GMT as part of a demolition project.

Littlebrook Power Station was situated next to the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge and the Dartford Tunnel.

Phil Church, who captured the explosion on film, said: "You could feel the blast from across the river."
