Operators from Northolt Troop, 11 Explosive Ordnance Disposal Regiment arrived on site at 4:00pm on Wednesday 24th February where they immediately deployed their Cutlass, state-of-the-art remote controlled vehicle, it’s more usually associated with pin pointing suspicious packages and explosive devices and destroying them however, in this case it was sent in to try and locate the missing inside the former turbine hall.

The senior Fire Officer on site and Incident Commander, Gary Coupar of Oxford Fire & Rescue, in praise said, “The bomb disposal team have brought the capability to send in their remote controlled robot into what remains a dangerous structure allowing us to continue the search without the risk of endangering others.”
