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.
Police in Dorset and the Avon and Somerset forces are to wear body cameras as part of their uniform.
The technology is being piloted with plans to roll it out to all front-line officers. The footage will be able to be used as evidence.
Dorset Police says the technology is being introduced to make police more accountable. The cameras will be used to record the majority of incidents.
The Avon and Somerset force welcomes a system that will help keep officers safe.
I have seen body worn video help gather evidence effectively, especially at incidents such as domestic abuse. It can encourage people to be more open in interviews and plead guilty earlier.
It can also professionalise the work of the police through openness and transparency.
This represents a very significant step forward for the force.
