'Bang': Chimney at UK Power Plant Demolished

The chimney at the site of a power station in the area of Fawley, England, came tumbling down on Sunday, October 31, as a demolition team imploded it.

Peter Henley posted this footage to Twitter, saying, “That was a BiG bang.”

Local authorities said the "half a century old tower, which was 198m [roughly 650 feet] high, was gone in seconds.”

The controlled demolition was carried out to facilitate the creation of a new development in the area. Credit: Peter Henley via Storyful
