The search for three missing men following the disaster at Didcot A Power Station is to resume.
Part of the 10-storey boiler house at Didcot A Power Station collapsed at about 4pm on Tuesday 23 February. Michael Collings, 53, is known to have died and police have been working to recover the bodies of three missing people. Birmingham-based Coleman Group had been working at the site.
However Thames Valley Police has said the collapsed building presented “complex engineering challenges” and specialists have been brought in.
Site owner RWE has now presented a plan to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Police to allow it start work on the collapsed debris, ready to recover the missing men.
Equipment and people started arriving on site yesterday, with hopes to resume the recovery operation by the weekend.
A joint statement from the HSE and Police said: “Progress with the plan over the coming days will be closely monitored. Our priority remains the recovery of the missing men so they can be returned to their families and to understand what caused this incident.
”Specialist officers from Thames Valley Police continue to support the families and are providing them with regular updates on the progress of this work.”
