Plans for the UK's first nuclear power plant in a generation at Hinkley Point in Somerset are set to be given a boost today.
French energy giant EDF will confirm Chinese investment in the multi-billion-pound scheme.
An announcement will be made on the second full day of a visit to the UK by Chinese president Xi Jinping. He's due to attend a meeting with the Prime Minister at which the nuclear project will be discussed.
Anti-nuclear protestors have recently set up camp at the site.
Peter Higginson from EDF Energy says they respect the right of people to protest ahead of a planned demonstration this weekend against the proposed Hinkley power station
