Four anti-nuclear protesters who chained themselves together outside the Hinkley power plant have been fined a hundred pounds each today after they pleaded guilty to 'obstructing the highway'.
They blocked the main access road last month and caused large tailbacks in protest at plans to extend the Bridgwater site.
If the energy firm EDF gets permission for the new plant, it could be up and running by 2020.
