Demolition of four cooling towers at a record-breaking power station | SWNS TV

Thousands of spectators gathered in the rain as four cooling towers at an iconic power station were today (Sun) demolished.

A controlled explosion brought down the disused towers – each standing at 375ft high – in just 45 seconds when it was detonated shortly after 10.30am this morning.

Approximately 140 homes were evacuated and a 300-metre exclusion zone was set up around the site of the Ferrybridge Power Station, near Knottingley, West Yorks.

There were cheers and gasps as the four towers – which have stood for over 50 years – fell to the ground.
