Boilers were blown up at Kingsnorth Power Station, in Hoo

Another part of the defunct Kingsnorth Power Station, in Hoo, have been blown up this afternoon.

The two remaining boiler buildings were demolished at 3pm.

In May two bunkers were blown up at the decommissioned power station and two other boilers have already been demolished.

Other familiar buildings already flattened include the turbine hall, the coal handling plant and two boiler houses.

Kingsnorth was commissioned in 1973 but shut in December, 2012, after it reached a 20,000-hour operations threshold.

The full demolition programme, including flattening its 650ft chimney, is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
