Demolition: End of an era for iconic Didcot towers

The iconic cooling towers of Didcot Power Station have been a landmark across Oxfordshire, dominating the skyline for more than 40 years, but this weekend three of them will be demolished.

The towers have been a point of reference for walkers and drivers, and provided jobs and a way of life for many local families since the 1970s.

Family reaction after arson killer jailed

In a statement read after the sentence today, Shenaz Akhtar, the sister of Anum and Majid, said: "I would like to begin by thanking Allah for allowing justice to be done.

"We would also like to thank Mr Moore, Mr Roakes, Mr Kirby, Mr Storor, Miss Dactler and Mr Jones, the entire TVP team, the CPS, the media and all those who have been involved now and past 17 years.

"It has taken 17 years for Fiaz Munshi to be brought to justice for the killings of Majid and Anum.

"This is despite members of the Oxford community who have known the whereabouts of Fiaz Munshi ever since she fled the UK.

"Finally after 17 years we can now grieve properly and visit Majid and Anums grave together for the first time as a family and first time with our parents.

"This is the happiest day of our lives and we carried on fighting for Majid and Anum who will always remain deep within our hearts."
