Didcot Power Station: Second Body Recovered

A second body has been recovered from the remains of Didcot power station, 6 months after the incident.

Four Workers Killed

The boiler house of the power station – a 10-storey concrete and steel building – collapsed in February this year. Four demolition workers were killed during the incident.

Ken Cresswell, 57, John Shaw, 61, Chris Huxtable, 34 and 53 year old Michael Collings were trapped under around 20,000 tonnes of rubble following the collapse. Until now only one body had been recovered, that of Michael Collings.

A spokesman for Thames Valley police said:

“The person has not yet been formally identified and this will be a matter for the coroner.

“Our thoughts remain with the families of the missing men and we would ask that their privacy is respected during this incredibly difficult time.”

Didcot A

The former coal-fired station, Didcot A, opened in 1970 and was eventually converted in order to able to generate power from natural gas. The power station closed in 2013 and three of its six cooling towers underwent a controlled demolition in 2015.

Following the collapse in February, the remainder of the building had been too unsound to be approached. A 50-metre exclusion zone was set up around the site and was finally demolished last month.
