An update on the partial collapse of Didcot A Power Station

Alert message sent 08/06/2016 13:45:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

The Home Office and Ministry of Defence (MOD) have approved the deployment of military aid to support the ongoing multi-agency recovery operation following the partial collapse of  the boiler house at Didcot A power station on 23 February 2016. This support has been provided following a request by the Multi-agency Strategic Coordination Group in line with Military Aid to Civil Authority principles. 
The MOD will be providing equipment and personnel working with Thames Valley Police (TVP) to support RWE the site owners, Brown & Mason their principal contractors and Alford Technologies who are their demolition specialists to prepare for the remaining structure to be brought down safely. This will expedite the recovery work. 
Our absolute priority remains the recovery of the missing men so they can be returned to their families and to understand what caused this tragic incident. Specialist officers from TVP continue to support the families and are providing them with daily updates on the progress on this work.
