Video report by ITV News Anglia's Serena Sandhu

New technology which could revolutionise how we store our nuclear waste in this country was unveiled in Suffolk today.

Sizewell B near Leiston has been showing off the new dry fuel storage canisters which are already used elsewhere in Europe and in America.

Until now, British power plants have been disposing of their spent fuel in underwater pools but that could now all change.
