In this clip filmed today (August 22), crowds gather on a residential street in West Yorkshire, as demolition by controlled explosives brought down Ferrybridge's chimney stacks.

Spectators and residents gathered on Wordsworth Drive in Ferrybridge village to see two 650ft chimney stacks and a boiler house be demolished as part of the decommissioning of Ferrybridge C Power Station by contractors Keltbray.

The coal-fired power station closed back in 2016 as a greener energy plant was built nearby, making the current station redundant.

The first part of the demolition took place back in July 2019.

Three cooling towers remain at the site which will be also brought down by controlled explosives in the near future.
