The fifth controlled explosion at the disused Tilbury Power Station took place this afternoon across the Thames from Gravesend.
A small crowed gathered on the riverfront at 3pm as an explosive demolition brought down the northern end of the de-aeration bay and the conditioning and storage bunker.
The de-aeration bay was about 117m long, 17m wide and 44m high and made from structural steel. The concrete conditioning and storage bunker was about 40m long, 28m high and 14m wide.

Last month the fourth explosion brought down the southern end of the remaining turbine hall, which was about 112m long, 27m wide and 25m high.
Three of four steel structures known as precipitators were destroyed in a small explosion in June, half the turbine hall was demolished in April and a large explosion in September brought down one of the 28m-high coal junction towers.

The other main structures, such as the conveyor system and chimneys, are scheduled for explosive demolition over the next couple of months.
The boiler house and coal bunkers are scheduled for demolition next year.
