THE Didcot cooling towers fell this morning and thousands gathered to watch them explode.

Drone footage by Drone Motion shows the iconic Oxfordshire towers quickly tumble to the ground.

Power went out across Didcot and surrounding areas seconds after the demolition of the power station.

According to reports from the scene, a drone may have hit the power line, causing a fire.
