Reports about state funding for nuclear energy

The energy company behind plans to build a new nuclear power station in Suffolk is reportedly asking for financial backing from the Government. EDF Energy has just completed a consultation about their proposals for Sizewell C.

Last week Centrica, who were to invest in the project, announced they were pulling out of the deal.

EDF says it won't comment on the reports and the Department for Energy & Climate Change told ITV News Anglia it will not give a running commmentary on discussions regarding nuclear projects.

A major investor in a proposed new nuclear power station at Sizewell in Suffolk has pulled out of the project. Centrica says it's taken the decision because the costs have increased and the construction timetable has got longer.
