Photographers everywhere were said to be 'really quite upset' today after three Didcot power station cooling towers were demolished at 5am on Sunday by some inconsiderate bastard. Colin Talbot, an amateur photographer from Shitterton spoke for many. 'They should have made a proper announcement about this. I never got around to taking a decent shot with the light just right'.
Motoring organisations are said to be 'deeply disappointed' that their members will be denied the opportunity in future to roll down the window and fiddle with the camera phone as the majestic towers come into view at 70mph.
Much to the dismay of residents and photographers alike, RWE NPower blew up the decommissioned structures on schedule between the hours of 0300 and 0500 BST, in the full knowledge that flash photography would be 'rubbish' anywhere outside the blast zone.
Didcot resident Bert Gaston summed up local feeling, 'Anyone that wanted to watch had to get out of bed at a time they didn't even know existed, and it was really hard to see much, let alone get a nice pic on the iPhone. Them that didn't want to watch couldn't exactly have a lie-in.' He tutted, reflectively, 'NPower. Are they the ones that have that little rubber turd for a mascot?'
