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.

Budleigh Salterton Cricket club remains underwater in the aftermath of Storm Katie. The pitch had already flooded twice this winter - but was being prepared for the new season. But intense downpours over Easter caused the River Otter to flood further upstream. The water level has dropped by two or three feet but it's likely to be sometime before the clean up can begin.
This was the scene just 48 hours before the cricket club was flooded again. It shows the pitch being prepared for the new season after twice being inundated over the winter.
