Didcot A Power Station - Update

Wednesday 07 September 2016, 7:53pm

Thames Valley Police believe we have located one of the two missing men from Didcot power station today (7/9).

The families of the remaining two missing men, Ken Cresswell and John Shaw, have been informed and are being supported by specially trained Thames Valley Police officers.

The contractors have paused the removal of debris so that specialists from Thames Valley Police, Fire and Rescue’s Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) and the South Central Ambulance Service Hazardous Area Response Team (HART), can enter the site.

The safe recovery of the body will take place and the Disaster Victim Identification process will commence.

The person has not yet been formally identified and this will be a matter for the coroner.

Our thoughts remain with the families of Ken Cresswell and John Shaw and we would ask that their privacy is respected during this incredibly difficult time.

The body of Christopher Huxtable was recovered at Didcot Power Station on Wednesday 31 August.
