A date has been set for the next explosion just across the Thames in Tilbury.

The ninth explosive demolition at the iconic Tilbury Power Station will take place at around 9am on February 1.

So if you hear a bang in north Kent on Friday, look across the water.

The most recent demolition was in September, where the tallest structures in Essex came crumbling down in less than ten seconds.

The controlled demolition will simultaneously bring down two separate units and their grit arrestors and ducting.

The structures are constructed of steel and concrete and are approximately 43m long by 14m wide and 27m high.

To protect everyone on site and in the local area an exclusion zone will be in place before, during and immediately after the explosion.

Demolition of this section of the power station is considered to be low impact. Although the explosion and collapse may be heard off site, any noise will be over very quickly.

The other main structures, including the boiler houses, are scheduled for explosive demolition through 2018 and into 2019.

The complete demolition of the site is expected in 2019.
