Proposed nuclear reactor uses French design

The proposed new Sizewell C nuclear power station could create more than 5,500 jobs in the construction sector.

Plans are being released today by EDF Energy for building the new French designed European Pressurised Reactor, or EPR, on the Suffolk coast.

The EPR uses two nuclear reactors within the same single plant to produce 3.2 gigawatts of power.
