Four demolition workers died when the boiler room fell down six months ago, the bodies of three had been trapped ever since. The body of Chris Huxtable, 34, was recovered last week.

The body is believed to be that of Ken Cresswell or John Shaw

The families of the two missing men, Ken Cresswell, 57, and John Shaw, 61, were present as the emergency services and workers formed a Guard of Honour.

Also present were members of Thames Valley Police, the Ministry of Defence, Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, RWE and Coleman and Company.

Formal identification of the body is yet to take place.
