The Government has asked nuclear regulators to assess the design of a new Chinese power station planned for Bradwell in Essex.

The nuclear plant at Bradwell will be next to the site of the old power station currently being dismantled there.

It will form part of the government's new nuclear programme which will start with the building of a station at Hinkley Point in Somerset.
