Plans for the UK's first nuclear power plant in a generation at Hinkley Point in Somerset are set to be given a boost today.
French energy giant EDF will confirm Chinese investment in the multi-billion-pound scheme.
An announcement will be made on the second full day of a visit to the UK by Chinese president Xi Jinping. He's due to attend a meeting with the Prime Minister at which the nuclear project will be discussed.
Anti-nuclear protestors have recently set up camp at the site.
Peter Higginson from EDF Energy says they respect the right of people to protest ahead of a planned demonstration this weekend against the proposed Hinkley power station.
Roy Pumfrey from Cannington in Somerset has been holding up traffic to protest against lorries passing through the town.
He says EDF Energy has passed its deadline to remove asbestos from the proposed Hinkley C site. The company has apologized but says it's taken longer than expected.
