UK - Decommissioned Power Station Collapses While Being Prepared to be Demolished

(OP)
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-oxfordshire-3...

Part of Didcot A - a decommissioned, coal-fired power station - collapsed, apparently during the preparation for (what I believe was explosive) demolition "in the coming weeks".

Quote, "A full half of the 984ft long turbine hall has collapsed, and in its place there's a 30ft high pile of debris, including an estimated 12,000 ton of twisted metal".
