Crowds gathered this morning to watch the chimney at Littlebrook power station being blown up- the final stage of its demolition.

At 215 metres, the chimney had been the second largest in the UK.

  • WATCH the moment it comes down-Thankyou to @AveleyVillage for the original video.

The power station stopped operating in 2015- due to rising oil prices and stricter energy regulations.

There had been calls locally to preserve the site and regenerate it
