I understand that the engineers have advised that the current chimneys are "beyond repair". I have a feeling that this probably means "very expensive to repair".
I agree that it would be a real shame to lose these iconic chimneys and as the power station is Grade I listed surely they will not be allowed to just pull them down.
Having said that, at least replicas would be something rather than just losing them altogether.
