The family of a man whose body has been trapped for fifteen weeks beneath the remains of Didcot power station is calling for the Government to step in.

Ken Cresswell from Rotherham was working at the plant in Oxfordshire when it collapsed in February.

His body, along with that of his Rotherham-based colleague John Shaw and the body of a third man is underneath the twisted metal structure which has been declared unsafe by its owners.

Ken's wife and three daughters have told ITV Calendar that they are living through hell.

"There are no words to describe it. It's the worst thing ever to look at it thinking 'he's under there'. And you can't help it. You feel like running in and doing it."

The families have even protested outside the power station - its owners RWE still say the remainder of the structure is unstable, rendering it unsafe to go into the area where the three men are buried.
