PM refuses to give financial backing to Moorside project

The Prime Minister has told ITV Border she understands concerns in Cumbria over uncertainty about a new nuclear power station in the county.

Theresa May said her government remains committed to new nuclear but she didn't commit to funding the Moorside project.

The Prime Minister's refusal to give financial backing to Moorside comes as the company in charge of developing the project has admitted for the first time that the project will be delayed.
