At least one person was killed and three others were missing after a building collapsed on Tuesday at a disused British power plant, the local fire service said.
The incident occurred at the RWE npower Didcot A power plant, around 70 miles (113 km) west of London. The plant closed in 2013 and was in the process of being demolished.
"I can confirm search operations are in progress and that there has been one fatality, five persons have been taken to hospital and three persons are currently missing," Oxfordshire Fire Service Area Manager Mat Carlile said in a statement.
Residents told local media there had been a large rumble, prompting reports there had been an explosion. Television pictures showed half a large building at the site appeared to have collapsed.
