Campaigners opposed to the planned Hinkley C nuclear power station have continued their protests, as a final decision on the project by French energy company EDF draws near.
A small group of protesters gathered in King's Square in Bridgwater, Somerset, on Thursday, some carrying banners dubbing the project a "white elephant".
One placard read: "Hinkley C will be everyone's financial nightmare".
Allan Jefferey, 64, spokesman for campaign group Stop Hinkley, called on EDF to withdraw from the project.
"I would like to urge EDF at their board meeting not to go ahead with what will be financial or commercial suicide," Mr Jefferey said.

An EDF board member has resigned ahead of a vote in which the Hinkley Point nuclear plant is expected to be approved.
Gerard Magnin, one of 18 board members, said the project is financially "risky" and will steer France further away from renewable energy sources.
In a resignation letter to chief executive Jean-Bernard Levy, seen by Reuters, Magnin said he was disappointed EDF's strategy was moving more and more towards nuclear power.
"I no longer want to support a strategy that I do not agree with," Magnin wrote.
