Last remaining body found in wreckage at Didcot Power Station

The last remaining body has been found by investigators at the Didcot Power Station wreckage, more than six months after part of the building collapsed.

Thames Valley Police said they believe the body to be that of John Shaw, 61, who has been missing at the site since the disaster in February. His family has been informed.

He is the last of the four men to be found following the collapse of the boiler house.

Ken Cresswell, 57, from Rotherham in South Yorkshire, was discovered in the wreckage on Wednesday.

Michael Collings was found soon after the collapse of the building, while Christopher Huxtable was located on August 31.
