Cooling Towers Demolished at England's Ferrybridge Power Station

Four cooling towers at the Ferrybridge power station ‘C’ in Knottingley, England, were demolished on Sunday, October 13.

More than 140 homes were evacuated as a precautionary measure before the demolition of the local landmark, which operated as a coal-fired electricity plant for 50 years before it was closed by SSE in March 2016, the Wakefield Express reported.

The video, filmed by Simon Davies, shows that the towers came down in less than 10 seconds on Sunday morning. Credit: Simon Davies via Storyful
