A loud boom was heard across London around 8am today. This was the demolition of the the last chimney of the Littlebrook Power Station in Dartford.

The chimney was 215m high (twice the size of Big Ben) and was demolished due to the environment standards of the power station

The Dartford Crossing was closed during the demolition, due to the possible distractions caused, and will be reopened as soon as possible

The noise was heard by many people around 8am and they have been talking about it on twitter and Facebook
