Plans for a new nuclear reactor - Sizewell C, in Suffolk - could be delayed but not cancelled after one of the major backers pulled out. Centrica says it's taken the decision because the costs have increased and the construction timetable has got longer.

But experts and politicians say confidence is high that new investors will make up the shortfall.
