Footage of cooling towers being demolished at Didcot power station
THREE huge cooling towers at a disused power station have been blown up using 180kg of explosives. Despite warnings to expect a dust cloud, hundreds of people gathered to watch the demolition at the Didcot A Power Station in Oxfordshire. The coal-fueled power station, which has been a fixture of the skyline since 1970, ceased generating in March 2013.

A jellyfish filmed swimming off the coast of Cornwall is thought to be the biggest ever caught on camera in Britain. The four-foot wide barrel jellyfish, which is also known as the dustbin-lid jellyfish, was filmed by diver and archeologist Robert Lenfert. Robert, 42, and his wife Natasha, 39, met the giant creature off Pendennis Point, near Falmouth, Cornwall. The pair swam beside the giant sea beast for half an hour as it glided through the water.

Experts demolish exactly half a tower block in China
An incredible video has emerged of a large tower block in northern China being split precisely in half during a controlled demolition on Tuesday. A demolition crew managed to knock down just side of the once iconic Xiangyun Building in the city of Shenyang, Liaoning Province, leaving the other half remaining. A wrecking ball was used to knock out the supports to the structure while strategically placed explosives controlled the implosion. Once the wreckage is cleared away, the site is to be used for a new commercial complex, with an indoor theme park, huge five-star hotel, hypermarket, and office block. Credit: Newsflare/zhangcl521
