The BBC is reporting that the tallest concrete structure ever to be knocked down in Britain has been destroyed in an impressive demolition.

The chimney formed part of a power station on the Isle of Grain, on the east coast of the UK.

The tower is taller than 55 double decker buses and is 2.5 times the height of London's Big Ben clock tower.

The chimney is the latest stage in the demolition of the old station, which was closed in 2012.
