Specialists used explosives to demolish a disused power plant in the western German city of Dortmund on Sunday.

Disused since 2014, the Gustav Knepper power plant was brought down in two explosions 30 minutes apart.

A spokeswoman for the demolition company said the operation had run "as planned and without complications".
