Powering down at nuclear power plant

Kent's nuclear power plant, Dungeness B, is closing down one of it's reactors for 12 weeks to carry out a 30-million pound maintenance program.

It will involve 12-thousand pieces of work which are not possible when the reactor is working.

Cameras are used for remote access.

Around 500 extra staff are on the EDF site to help carry out specialist checks, and replace and upgrade materials.

  • Baroness Brinton from Kenardington in Kent
  • Ivor Caplin, the former Labour Hove MP, and
  • Michael Tomlinson, the Tory MP for Mid Dorset and North Poole

And Salisbury ... now the British Government has pinpointed the Russian's involvement, how should we respond?
