BBC news reports, the government is close to giving the green light to a new nuclear power station at Sizewell in Suffolk,
The BBC has learned that talks with the Sizewell contractor, EDF, have intensified in recent weeks. This comes after the collapse of projects in Anglesey and Cumbria when Japanese firms Hitachi and Toshiba pulled out. Government officials are insisting that it “remains committed to new nuclear”. This commitment to new nuclear may be included as part of a 10-point government plan to be published in early November.
