The Red Arrows won't be coming to Minehead this year following the announcement that the town's summer festival has suddenly been called off. Butlin's, who organise the long-running event, say it's because of new legislation introduced after the Shoreham air crash. More than 12,000 people attended the 2015 event last August.
The team at Butlin’s and the Minehead Events Group are currently looking at options to replace the event, and say they will make an announcement if and when they have any news. It is more sad news for Minehead which has already lost out on the Real Ale Festival held at the Railway Station for this summer.
The chief exec of French energy giant EDF is confident that the new nuclear plant in Somerset will be built, despite fresh delays.
The final investment decision on the £18 billion project at Hinkley Point has again been put back - waiting on a 60 day consultation with the company's workers.
Vincent de Rivaz, speaking to MPs on the Energy and Climate Change Committee, insisted the project was not on hold, and "everything was set" for power to be generated by 2025.
Mr de Rivaz added that EDF was not going to "give up" on Hinkley, although he realised people were worried.
