A committee of MPs has severely criticised the private consortium that manages the Sellafield nuclear plant in Cumbria.
In its latest report, the Commons' Public Accounts Committee says it is extremely concerned about spiralling costs and delays to projects.
Chair of the Committee, Margaret Hodge MP, says the contract for Nuclear Management Partners (NMP) should have been reconsidered, before an extension was awarded.
