A CONTROLLED explosion across the river caused quite a commotion in Thurrock last night (Thursday).
The explosion was in-fact a controlled demolition at Littlebrook Power Station, which is in Albion Road near the River Thames, Dartford Crossing tunnel and QEII Brige.
It was the fourth explosive demolition to have taken place at the station since it ceased operating back in March 2015.
This time, the “D” station was brought down.
The demolition itself lasted around 10 seconds and was carried out at 12am.
