People protesting against plans to build a new nuclear power plant in Somerset are preparing to scale the fences of the proposed site.
After a weekend of action campaigners are planning a 'mass trespass' on the land earmarked for the Hinkley C station this morning.
Full permission to build the plant is still yet to be granted. The company behind the proposal, EDF Energy, say they have the support of the majority of local people.
Anti-nuclear protesters are hoping to stage a mass trespass today at Hinkley Point near Bridgwater. Six people have been arrested.
Campaigners from all over Britain converged in Bridgwater today for a mass rally in protest against the Hinkley C nuclear power station.
Protesters have gathered in Somerset at the site earmarked for the first of a new generation of nuclear power stations.
