The Government is expected to announce today (Tuesday 19 March) that it is giving the go-ahead to the first of a planned fleet of new nuclear reactors in the UK.
Energy Secretary Ed Davey will announce whether he is granting consent for French energy giant EDF to build a nuclear power plant at Hinkley Point C in Somerset.
The plant's two nuclear reactors would be capable of producing 7% of the UK's electricity, enough to power five million homes, EDF said.
