Didcot power station collapse: Footage shows scale of devastation

New pictures show the devastating aftermath of the Didcot power station collapse.

Around 20,000 tonnes of material is seen at the Oxfordshire site in footage released by Thames Valley Police.

Three workers are still missing - eight weeks on from the disaster.

Demolition workers Ken Cresswell, 57, and John Shaw, 61, both from Rotherham, South Yorkshire, and Chris Huxtable, from Swansea, remain missing following the collapse on February 23.

Police said a debris pile - equivalent to the length of a football pitch - has been removed from the scene so far.

Officers said workers were "dawn to dusk" to clear the rest of the rubble.
