It's been announced that the famous cooling towers at the Didcot power plant will be demolished at the end of July.

Explosives will be used to bring the three towers down early on Sunday July the 27th. It will take less than a minute.

This is the first part of the demolition of the Didcot A Power Station which has been part of the landscape for more than 42 years.
