Hinkley Point delivery team: 'what on earth are our government doing for us?'

The group tasked with delivering the Hinkley Point C nuclear reactors project has launched a scathing attack on the government for delaying the project.

Tim Jones from the Hinkley Strategic Delivery Forum said he was shocked and angry after the government chose to delay signing a deal to build the UK's first nuclear power station for a generation despite energy firm EDF confirming it would go ahead with the project.

Mr Jones said:

"We've been waiting for this project to get off the ground for a very long time. We've got accommodation ready, we've got training packages ready."

"We're just angry that we can't get on. What on earth are our government doing for us?"
