£14 billion Sizewell C nuclear power station begins

Video report by ITV Anglia's Tanya Mercer.

EDF's second stage of consultation for the proposed 14 billion pound Sizewell C nuclear power station begins.

The new consultation deals with a range of issues concerning roads, workers' accommodation and environmental impacts.

In a separate announcement in the autumn statement, the Chancellor promised one million pounds to look at easing traffic on the A12 nearby.

The Sizewell C project could provide 25,000 jobs during its construction and go on to generate electricity for 6 million homes, but the proposals are causing concerns for those who live nearby.
