Greenpeace has dropped its legal challenge to block the new Hinkley C nuclear plant in Somerset.

The campaign group was forced to drop its application for a judicial review after the Government revealed plans for a waste dump, but Greenpeace maintains its view that the radioactive dump will never be built.
